Gourds are the perfect medium for me. I can carve them, use pyrography, paint, weave, dye or write on them. I can do tribal art, primitive motifs, cutesy stuff, patriotic themes, goth looks, or whatever suits my fancy. So far I haven't run out of ideas!

A New Gourd Doll
I started making this doll a few months ago. I like it so far. I really do. I'm just not sure where to go from here. Yarn hair? Wire hair? Paint in the face with acrylics? Leave it primitive looking? Oh well I'll come up with something. I've done the pyrography on it.
