Gourd Slide

Sometime between 2012 and 2015

Time to carve: 4 hours
Finishing: 2.5 hour

Another set slides that took some time to find just the materials. In the end, I ordered a couple of dipper gourds off of ebay. Now this really surprised me when it came to carving because it was one of the hardest natural materials I've come across. I used linoleum v blades to cut the groves in the gourds and was sharpening often. I used craft paints and cotton swabs to get the paint into the groves wiping the excess off with a paper towel. A couple of coats of poly finish them off
