Items used in this project are:
Proxxon Delta Sander
Proxxon Rotary Tool
Stick and Burn (for wood burning)
Acrylic Paint & Brushes
As you may remember from the last post, I had finished the wood burning and had cleaned the gourd up in preparation to finishing it. Well the next step in the process was to use my Proxxon Rotary Tool and stipple around the ship. I used a ball burr and it took a very long time with rests occasionally to complete this step.
Once the stippling was finished, it was time to paint the picture, so to speak. I used acrylic paints and alcohol inks to color the gourd. The background is done in alcohol inks.
I then cut a gourd, cleaned it out completely and covered it with hemp rope to use for the base,
I think it set off the ship, don't you?
