I love working to create a beautiful piece of art with a gourd. Either by painting, carving or burning. I am always ready to learn more techniques.
Eileen, thank you for your comment. You would love working with clay. Quickwood is great, but you have to work fast before it sets up. I love to work with gourds. I just bought a woodburner so I can try to burn like you do. I may need some advise. It looks like you have that mastered.
I'm also self-taught. ;o) I've had 2 painting classes, 2 days of carving where I learned how to destroy a gourd and not how to smooth things out, and the list goes on. ;o) I've learned by reading, doing my own thing, and asking questions. You've done very well learning on your own!!
