Crafting the carousel.

I looked round Falmouth Town today for things I could use to make the carousel. I was amazed what I found in Trego Mill's kitchen & home baking section. I bought;
  • 3 deep cook metallic dishes; for the roof and base of the carousel,
  • 1 kitchen roll dispenser; for the central pole of the carousel,
  • white base acrylic paint- as a base to decorate over,
  • white kitchen food netting cover- to use as a drape/curtain I thought would look nice,
  • glue gun so I have a clean fix.

Unfortunately the acrylic paint did not take to the metallic or wood as thick as I would have liked, so I plan to paper mache over them first, then paint over to create a thicker, bolder finish.
