CAROUSEL HORSE CARVING

Bud Ellis is a master wood sculptor with a fine arts background. After graduating with an art degree from Indiana University, Bud decided to try his hand at carving a carousel horse. Some twenty years later, he is now founder and owner of Horsin’ Around Carousel Carving School. His students have carved over 500 carousel animals that live on in restored carousels across the country.

For DIY Woodsculpting, Bud Ellis demonstrates that with just a few basic tools, almost anyone can learn how to carve a carousel horse. Bud also shows the painting technique behind carousel animals that gives them the depth of color and shading.
