While I've always admired the war paint on Lu Heater and Sandy Sanderson's performance Native American costume horses, I am reluctant to do anything that permanent to one of my own performance horses.
Sorry, Sandy. It's not happening.
Because of this, I was intrigued when Mel Boynes shared this picture from the West Coast Live Performance Show, held in Guildford, Western Australia. It depicts her Matriarch winning a costume class with removable war paint. She writes: I made these markings from painters tape. I placed it on a smooth board, cut out the templates, painted the colours, then peeled them off on the day. It worked better than I thought it would!
Well done, Mel. I think that is a perfect solution. Congratulations on your win and thank you for sharing!
