Yes I made another gourd with my Proxxon tools. I'm primarily a Gourd Artist and working with gourds is a passion of mine.
Here's the materials you will need:
Proxxon Delta Sander
Proxxon Rotary Tool w/ flexshaft
Wood burning Tool
Alcohol Inks in Fall colors
Acrylic paint (Ivory)
Clean piece of cloth cut into squares
Krylon Kamar Varnish
I started out with a gourd on which I drew a circle and cut the top out of. Here's a picture of how yucky it looks when it's first opened up. I do want to mention again though, that it is very unsafe to not wear a respirator mask when working with a gourd in cutting it open and also cleaning the inside out or when doing any carving or grinding on one.
I then used the Proxxon Rotary Tool w/flexshaft to use a scribble technique within the borders for my leaves. This technique helps to make the leaves and acorns on this gourd to stand out. But what makes it stand out even more is painting over the scribbles with the Ivory Acrylic Paint. This makes the leaves and acorns really pop.
