"I love this as it brings back memories when I was a little girl and played with little trolls. I was one of few who had troll houses and this reminds me so much of that! The movie "the gnome mobile" started that and "oops"…"

I love nature and working with it. I purchased a packet of gourd seeds and made my first birdhouse gourd from my "crop of 20"...and the rest was history. Im hooked and on a tail spin, painting and sculpting and growing gourds,I'm amazed at what can be done with them and I love looking at all gourds big and small !! look forward to showing some of my creations.
Hi Denise, I use Envirotex (not sure about the spelling). You can get it at Michaels. It's a 2 part product that you mix together. To get rid of the bubbles on the surface after pouring, blow on it or I use my small torch and they are immediately gone. Phyllis
Thanks! I have only been at this since last Sept. My husband saw the gourd and said "flamingo" so that is what it will be. I grow bamboo too, but the thin black kind in a huge pot, so that would not be strong enough, but I do have some thicker bamboo too. I hadn't thought about putting it all the way through and wonder what I would do. Thanks so much for sharing your ideas. I just love this site and all the wonderful people that help and inspire each other!
