This will not be the most beautiful gourd
that you have ever seen,
but it is something that,
I am very proud of.
I have so many hours into this project,
that I do not remember how many.
It is like having a baby,
if you remember the pain,
you'll never try it again.
I did this project many years ago,
and although I purchased two more gourds at the farmers market,
that day, I have not yet,
started carving them.
I used Steve's Dremel tool.
A gourd is very hard when dried, but also easily cracked.
Ergo, it is a painstaking process.
I have a great appreciation
for Gourd Artists.
There are so many marvelous artist,
that work with gourds.
If you have a chance to go
to a show featuring this vegetable
as it's medium . . .don't miss it.
As for me, the next gourd I carve will be a
nice fresh soft pumpkin, LOL.
