Making a 3D model of your horse's back using Lorien Stable templates

First, make a copy of the rocker. You'll need a strip of posterboard about 4" by 24". Trace the rocker you have, copy over the ticks and the *, and cut it out. Set these aside for a moment.

Template 1:
  • Draw a line straight down from the tick at the left edge to the bottom of the paper.
  • Draw a line straight across from the tick to the other side of the template. Draw a tick where that line meets the right side of the template.
  • Draw a line straight down from the tick at the right edge to the bottom of the paper.

Cut along the 2 lines you have drawn, ONLY to the preprinted bottom line on the template.

  • Slide the left cut in Template 1 over the first rocker paper at the *.
    Make sure the rocker sits snugly in the cut, all the way up to the line.

  • Slide the right cut in Template 1 over the second rocker paper at the *.
    Make sure the rocker sits snugly in the cut, all the way up to the line.

  • For templates 2 to 5, draw a line straight down. Match the line up with the preprinted outside vertical lines on the template paper.
  • Cut along the 2 lines you have drawn, ONLY to the preprinted bottom line on the template.

Put each template onto the rocker papers, matching it up with the correct set of ticks. Template 2 goes on the set of ticks just behind Template 1. Template 3 goes on the next set of ticks. Repeat for each template.
Make sure the rocker sits snugly in each cut, all the way up to the line.

Your model will now look like this.
