Good Saturday Afternoon!

I have been working on some gourd eggs....whewhoo fun! I didn't do a pattern contest because no,one seemed interested. So maybe later. Anywho I am working on Gourd Eggs! I have gotten 33 ready to work on. I am going to go in the paint room today and get started. I will take pics as I go for all to see. You can purchase gourd eggs on Ebay. Just go to the search bar and type in gourd eggs. There's a ton of them. The first thing do is clean my gourds. To do this I have an old wash tub that I fill with dish soap and a 1/2 cup of bleach. I scrub them with copper scrubbies. Then I rinse them off and let them dry. After they are dry I like to basecoat them with gesso. I have discovered skewers....drill a hole in the bottom of the gourd eggs and poke the skewer in make it a tight squeeze so it doesnt move around. This makes it easier to basecoat the gourds. Now decide what you are going to paint on them and get started.
I am not quite sure what I want to paint yet, too many ideas need to relax and focus on just one. Let's get started.
