"Charcoal will sometimes absorb bad smells. Do not know if it would work on gourds."

Gourd Inside Finish?

I made a Pumpkin gourd with the big mouth for Halloween Candy.  I have coated it twice with Minwax finish but my hands still smell like inside gourd when I get through holding it.  I am wondering if that odor will transfer to the candy even though it will be wrapped pieces.  I always have this yucky taste in my mouth when I cut or do anything with the inside of a gourd.  I was thinking of coating it with wax but hoped you all would have some suggestions.See More

Hello!

The picture is a gourd I did some time ago. I do decorative painting mostly but have a desire to work with gourds again. I got out my wood burner and will give it a try. Love all the work shown here and I have read some of the answers to some questions. I have already learned some things I needed to know.
