“>The Florida Gourd Festival is now over and I placed in three categories. The Santa Gourd  I sculpted paper clay to add dimension for for the face, beard, arms gloves and fur. The “Believe” message he is carrying is also part of a gourd that I cut and then wood burned the word Believe.  I added some bling with crystals and some raffia.  I thought he turned out pretty good, but only a third place ribbon this year.  I also placed third for a Santa necklace that I made, which I decided to enter at the last minute.  No photo on that one. The eggshell mosaic bowl in one of my previous posts received a “merit” ribbon but had lots of positive reviews from the public and other gourd artists.  Of course I did not mind sharing the technique, it is very easy to do, just requires lots of patience.

Here are the photos of a few of my entries .
