Zebra Rocking Horse

 This was Candice's nephews first Christmas, so she wanted to give him something special just from her that she made. She went to Michaels and picked up a non-finished rocking horse. They usually run about $30 but one of the things that is best about shopping there is that they always have coupons, so it was $15. Woot Woot! 
 Then she had the vision of having it look like a zebra but with a twist. No black and white Zebra for him, so she picked up off white spray paint and light and dark blue acrylic paints. 

 Start off  by spray painting the entire thing , taking extra care to get every side and angle. Then wait a few days to make sure the wood is good and dry. Next is time to hand paint the zebra stripes…..
 These don’t need to be the same on both sides because we all know that no two zebras stripes are the same! The final step is to paint over the muzzle and tail with the dark blue.  The painting of the eye was for me the most difficult but it turned out pretty well. What do you all think?
