Hey Val, I hate to admit it, but I haven't done much with my gourds for a while, been busy with other stuff but I did grow gourds a couple summers back and have lots to work with, just need to find the time. What kind of gourd art do you do? I'm getting ready to leave town for several days and will not have internet. Kathy
I found some soft polyester fabric in my stash. I thought of a casket when I lined it. I draped the fabric inside the gourd, did a rough trim and started pleating or gathering and gluing. I put a little glue in the bottom to hold the lining in place. When finished, I glued trim over the edges. The lining also hides the knots from the cord.
Girl friend, it sounds lovely and if I love, it can I copy it? The battery tea lights are all I use. I found some after Halloween that the bases were black, orange and purple. Sorry I didn't buy more as they worked out well in some of my gourds. Hunt everywhere for stuff. I found those in a drug store. There will probably be more after the next holidays. if there is anything I can help you with, pls ask. Everyone in here has been very helpful to me!!!
Hi Val. I am new to gourds, just started last Sept. and have seen so many lovely ideas in here. I don't mind if you copy it, but don't get it too close. ha ha..... I think part of this site is sharing and trying your own version of what u see. I will be interested to see what you do.
Well, what you do is great. I have a hard time with the growing part can't be on my feet very long at a time. I did grow 50 bird house gourds this past summer with help from a friend. I am very lucky though my brother is a master gardener and he is going to grow some for me to. Have you done anything besides drums?
