This is the first gourd I have ever done.  It's a present for my brother and his wife for XMas.  It was burned, carved, painted and inlaid with glass beads I crushed and used super glue to attach.

I didn't have a preset design...was either too lazy or didn't have time  *heh*...  I call it the "moon setting on the river with Viking horns and compass rose"  or "vessel I"  lol.

I had the gourds from about two years ago - bought at a Halloween place.  I am planning on making another for my SO with a buffalo for a present.

Appreciate any comments! Grin

OMG, that is absolutely beautiful! I wish I were your brother! Cheesy But when you bought the gourd, was it already dried out like that??

Hey thanks!  I am unsure if I like it, or if they'll like it! Roll Eyes

The gourds were *new* when I bought them.  I just let them dry out on my porch.  They are very nasty to clean out though!  Bleech!

I really like it! Very Native American looking.
