Hurrah the circus is complete!
I would like to thank my very clever parents for the tent. My father constructed the frame and my mother made the fabric while I watched in awe and learnt a thing or two.
All the animals are made to the 1/12 scale so that they are all in proportion to each other.
It’s been a very fun project and it has now gone off to its new home.

The Circus – The Horse

I have been making a horse to join the circus. Initially it was white but I was asked to make it skewbald. What’s that I wondered. I looked it up on the Internet and thought ahhh cow markings. I was not totally convinced I had done it correctly so I turned to the all knowledgable twitter. I then spent the evening learning about the difference between skew and pie bald thanks to Maggie and Alice Arnold.
