After seeing all the beautiful Fall leaves I decided
to create their images on one of my gourds. I call it
I love burning and staining the gourds. But I don't
like the cleaning out. It is a chore and one has to wear a mask
to protect one's lungs. In the end I think it is well worth the effort.
I use dyes that are made for gourd work. The colors really stay true
and last much longer than leather dye.
Just a little break from sewing and painting.
