GOURD Art Zen doodle whimsical decorative unique home decor homemade homegrown on sale
This is a decorative gourd I have decided to call "on sale!" as I have had it a while - just turned up in my stash! Time to make room for the new models!
I decided to do a pretty Zentangle design on this oddly shaped gourd using India Ink markers. First, I covered it in a couple random alcohol ink colors for a contrasting background. With the stem intact, I added a small collection of beads for interest at the top.
This is a decorative item that would be cute in any home setting! Finished with three coats of a UV Resistant clear coating.
Height to top is 10" tall, widest point across is about 6".
*****All of my gourds are homegrown! It is at least a year-long process - I start seeds in April, transfer to the garden end of May, they spend a summer enjoying the heat (and hopefully rain!) and then they rest and cure in my barn or greenhouse during the winter. In the spring, they are dried out, hard-shelled and ready for creating pieces of functional, whimsy art for the home!!
I recommend all hand painted/inked/dyed gourds be kept out of direct sunlight, to help preserve the colors. *****
