Skeleton water bottle project.

I just finished hogging out a 'lump-in-the-neck' gourd to make into a skeleton water bottle to wear with my pirate costume. Getting the seeds out isn't the hard part; it's getting the membranes out. The dry papery pieces clog the exit hole and take a lot of fussing with needlenose plyers and finger to get them out of the way.
Then I'll scrape down the sides. And then the fun begins. I'm going to paint it black with a skull on it.
