A fun slideshow showing different views of the same gourd - both before and after painting. 
Gourd Magic!
This LARGE gourd won 1st Place in the "Special Talents" Mixed Media category at the September, 2004 North Carolina Gourd show.  It also won 1st Place in the Advanced Mixed Media category and a Best of Division Ribbon at the California Gourd Society Competion held at the Welburn Festival in June, 2005. 
  It is now in a private collection.

This gourd was cut out using a small Microlux jig saw, and then carved with a Foredom tool and a Turbocarver tool.  The pictures that show the gourd prior to painting illustrate the depth of the carving.
