closed coiling

this is my first attempt at close coiling, of course I didn't use waxed linen, it is unwaxed embroidery thread. I have a new respect for all of you who do this.

Thank you Harlan and Janet, Harlan it will be the 16th of Oct. and Janet, If you get on line to Adirondack Alcohol ink, you will find teachers who show you how to do this with other things, but it goes on gourds just as easy........

I absolutely love your sense of color and the technique of using the alcohol inks. I have just purchased some alcohol inks but don't really know how to use them. Would you mind sharing the technique you use? I have tried to Google information but most of the info. I receive is how to purchase inks. Thanks for any help you could give me!
