Probably not what I’d do on some projects, but on this one it was the perfect opportunity to let my daughter draw and paint the horse prior to sealing it.
She was so excited helping out and painting it that it was all worth it. I basically let her complete freedom and a full set of brushes and water colors and away she went.
Note to self – for painting a large surface better to use larger finishing type brushes and not art brushes as it took forever to just paint the main theme.
After that, I took it apart, and applied 2 coats of shellac to seal the deal with 32o sanding after each coat. then applied a bit of glue and screwed it back up again. it is not comfortably smooth and ready for action:
I’ll just have to add handles ,and post it as finished later on.
Thanks for reading,
