Publisher Comments:

From carving, dying, and burning to watercolor effects and antique shading, a professional artist divulges all her crafting secrets--and serves up an array of breathtaking designs. With just a little imagination, and this guide brimming with creative insights, you can join those throughout the world who transform gourds into works of art. Beginners will discover in these pages a source of endless inspiration, comprehensive information, and fabulous color photos. 35 projects, many with templates, range from practical (a Dotted Horse Utensil Holder) to whimsical (like a clock that refuses to give the right time). Holiday time is the perfect time for gourd gifts, so an entire section showcases festive items, starting with vibrantly colored Easter "eggs" and ending with winter crafts--including "gourd-geous" ornaments decked on a live Christmas tree!
