carousel horse from rocking horse

parker806April 7, 2008

i have a chance to get an old rocking or hobby horse on frame with springs. i want to make a carousel horse with it and have seen them here somewhere where they are painted and then made into a carousel horse. any suggestions such as type of paint to use etc. for outdoor use will be very helpful. also any pictures or sites to go to will help too. thanks
