Work tagged as: gourds
Cindy is fascinated by gourds, their beautiful colors and shapes. She paints them with leather dyes which combine with their natural hue. Dried gourd shells have an appearance very much like wood. A close cousin to pumpkin, gourd art involves decorating dried gourd shells through carving, sanding, polishing or painting.
