I saw this large toy horse at the thrift shop and instantly fell in love with it. I just had to get it and do something with it. The mane and tail were typically matted. Red nail polish and other stains decorated it. It's such a large horse, about 22" tall and long. Where to put it was how I came up with the idea... outside. So I lathered it with plaster of paris. Mane and tail. I ran the substance completely through, squeezing and reapplying it. Then I formed the base where I wanted the mane to flow onto the body. Then added caulk for more design and painted it.
