Hi Brenda, Your gourds are wonderful!  I love each of them and can't wait to try some of the staining myself.  I work full time and have such a limited time for gourding.

Hi Brenda,

The inside of each basket is not carved.  I wood burned the lines inside and then painted.  Phyllis

Hi Brenda, she would sink in water,due to the load of coins in her belly. There is slot in her tail for coins to enter.

Thank you for the info on the glue. I am going to try some stones on the gourd I just cleaned.

You ask about the clothes--I found that if I mix a small amount of 2-part epoxy (or E6000) and pull up a couple of folds, then place just a dot with a toothpick between the valley's and the gourd that I can retain the drape effect without having to stiffen the material.  I do the same at the cuffs and a few places around the bottom--again, it lets me "hide" the armature and underside of the clothing without loosing the feel of the fabric.  If I am careful (: I can put several small dots of epoxy (rather than a "clump") it holds but doesn't soak through the material and show on the outside.  Most of the time, I take straight pins and kind of plan folds ahead of time about where I will want them to I can get through before the epoxy hardens.  Since I can't stick pins into the gourd, I sometimes use scotch tape to hold things in place until the glue hardens. I drill through the gourd about shoulder high and run a wire through it and hold it in place with a small amount of t-part putty from the hardware store.  That way I have a wire to attach the hands to after they are baked.  I drill a hole and again, with 2-part epoxy, I cement the hands to the wire.   Hope that made sense!

Brenda, thank you for your kind words.  Your painting is just wonderful!  I really love the way you have shaded the wings--great color choices.  The should be a special award for good husbands who sand the bases, cut the wood, and become the extra pair of hands on the spur of the moment-- bless them!

This was my first time with Fixit and I have to say I loved it. The finished product was very smooth and easy to use Memories Inks on. Prosculpt is great once you get used to it. If you play to long it gets warm and you need to let if rest awhile. I do use Premo clay sometimes , like for the head cover and the under cape on the figures. I read you can tint Fixit with oil paints I may try that on something.They say use very little

Thank you Brenda, I use Prosculpt for the faces and Fixit it sculpt for the trim on the gourds. Fixit it is very strong and gives a lot of play time. Prosculpt is soft till you bake.
