Hand painted/crafted gourds
This gourd I painted with acrylic paint after it was sanded & cleaned, then I used an acrylic outside spray paint to cover and protect it.
A beautiful purse made from a gourd. It is lined inside with fabric and has a latch attached for closure on the outside. and a nice little leather handle.
Beautifully hand painted and glazed small gourds to use as tree ornaments.
One of my favorites is this warty gourd painted with a gold paint over green and then sealed with a clear coat. such a beautiful decoration for any use.
This gourd I hand painted for my dad. My son Jacob planted one seed and we ended up with around 40 of these bird house gourds.
This is a beautiful lamp made from a gourd, you can order the tools to do this and the light kit to put inside. It is very beautiful when in a dark room as the lighting comes through the holes.
This is the front side of the gourd I done for dad. He will hang it up for of coarse a bird house.
This is another bird house gourd that Jacob grew & I painted and sent to my dad. I loved this one as I love painted koi fish.
