    Default Isnt this the coolest clip job in the whole world?!

    I would do this in a heartbeat if I could figure out how to do it properly!

    Does anyone else have examples of really neat looking clips they have done or seen?


    I would love to be able to do something like this without making it look like mutant stubby little trees ...

    Wow. But some of that might feel funny under a saddle & girth without extra padding?

    Tee hee, that photo is hanging on the bulletin board at our barn. Pretty awesome, but I'll stick to traditional

    I clip a lot, so I get pretty bored with it, and there is now a lot of competition in my area for clippers sneaking in on my business. This year I have started offering "tattoos". The kids are a riot with what they choose.
    Here are a couple.

    I have also done a clown, a juggling clown, a peace sign, a smiley face and a carrot.

    Love the pirate one! Don't think I am quite clever enough to try something other than my trace clips--and not sure what my hunt would say if I showed up with a skull & cross bones!

    Default used these for years

    Stencil Bum will supply any kind of clipping stencil.

    I don't bother with my grey, but used to have a four leaf clover on the other on (liver chestnut RID).

    They also do the paints - when you see designs coloured in at big events.

    Have you got an illustration perchance? That's a fad that hasn't caught on here yet, it seems, or at least I'm not familiar with it! Would loff to see some!

    I like the OP's for the off-season if you're not showing, and I ADORE the pirate one!

    Hi, My server stats brings me back here every once in a while when someone links to my website. Anyway to answer this question, I started making paint stencils after seeing an eventer with a thistle design marked using party hair paints instead of traditional brush at the big 3 day Badminton event in Gloucestershire a couple of years ago when I was exhibiting there. The designs are set with hair spray and they just sponge off at the end of the day. They are far bolder than brushing alone.

    One of the new designs I will be offering in the next week or so are the Paint 'For Sale' ones so people can advertise their horses in the arena!

    If you look here, there are some designs painted onto the horses of a girl I sponsor.

    There are other designs in the gallery including our pony Jessie which my daughter clipped a star pattern on from head to toe a few years ago.

    In Cindy Hale's book "A Passion for Horses" there is a photo of a horse with a carousel design clip - absolutely darling.

    Very cool. I seriously considered clipping a jack-O-lantern face on the butt of my blonde sorrel. He is the perfect pumpkin color but I chickened out.

    I'm honestly amazed that some of the corporately sponsored horses wouldnt get stencils made of their company logo's to go on the horse's derriere's with the hair paints mentioned. That way you could get the company colours in various places on the logo as well ...

    Things that make you go "hmmm ..."

    Wonder what kind of a market there would be to approach some of these sponsors, complete with the paint and instructions in the kit, for the horse's to be "stenciled" for their classes?

    For me - Freehand - no way, My hands aren't steady enough, and I'm not artistic enough (even though I'm a draughtsman by trade). I'm full of admiration for people who can do this and convincingly, but then I am for the portrait artists on the sea front.

    If you use some sort of a stencil, take your time and follow it carefully, you will get good results. The ones I make are done to make this process easier because they are sticky. Mine is just a system to give a guaranteed result (if you follow the instructions)
