She colored the water and fish by mixing Transparent Acrylics with Pigment Powders and framed the art piece with Metal Leafing so it feels like you are looking through a submarine window!

A hybrid of the chili gourd or banana gourd, these larger "People Gourds" are so-named because they are so popular for making figurines and sculptures!

Gourd art by Gloria Crane

Their tall canvas makes them ideal for vertical designs, like the art piece pictured at left with butterflies and filigree carving, by Gloria Crane.

They also work perfect for making small vases, like the "heart-vine" vase by Dianne Connelly, pictured right.

People gourds have a slight point at the bottom, so you will want to use a stand or sand them on a belt sander to get them to sit flat.

For the heart design vase shown right, Dianne Connelly sanded it down with a belt sander and then glued it to a base.

Gourd art by Diane Connelly

For Gloria Crane's butterfly piece, she made a base out of the neck of a bottle gourd. If you need to glue a base on, be sure to grab some Gourd Glue before you check out!
