And here is a fuzzy picture of my finished gourd, this is the "class" gourd, not the one I cleaned last weekend, sitting on my fire place mantle. Like I said my hands are still hurting, maybe that accounts for the fuzzies?!? Marilyn has a better picture of it on the CAC blog. Look for the one with the leaf.
This is the gourd I cleaned. I love the colors and shimmer of gold. I will try to work on this some today, if my fingers let me. I just painted it during the work shop and I thought if I learn how to do some of the more intricate work during the workshop, I can continue on my own. We will see.
