Yes, the gourd is carved and then I applied a acrylic paint.  Since I am a sloppy painter I then sanded all the excess paint on the surface.  Then I carefully used ink dyes for the final dark brown-red colors.  It's a little tedious to paint around the incised areas, but I love the effect.

Nevermind.  I see you cut them in.  The bird side looks raised from the surface.  Good Job.

This is stunning.  What did you use to make your turquoise figures?
