What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure you plan out your project so that you complete each step in the right order. Begin with dying, then drawing out your pattern, woodburning, carving, and then apply paint or dye touch-ups. The handle should be attached at the very last so it won't be in the way.

Just love this! I love turning gourds into works of art. Yours is very detailed and wonderful. ~~ Jenny
