"Thank you for the kind words, Cheryl. The beads are embeded one at a time in a mix of bees wax and pine pitch (beadswax) which is spread on the gourd. It's called Huichol style beading. Time consuming but relaxing for me and I enjoy it.…"
"Thanks for your kinds words Terry, I have taught beading classes at Ohio Show but not any painting classes yet.
Thanks for your purchase of my candle holder , hope you enjoy it. Glad you made the long trip to the Ohio Show, maybe we will see…"
Thank you Heather for your kind words. Painting has always been my first love, but got hooked on beading and have recently done some woodburning. It's amazing you can do so many techniques with gourds. Don't get to conventions much, not too many in our area here in Indiana. We do have a great gourd community here and in Ohio which is close.
Sandra your painting is wonderful. I have been taking lessons from one of our gourd members who is a wonderful painter. She has gotten me totally hooked on it. Are you going to the decorative painting convention in Vegas in feb? or do y ou go closer to home?
