What advice would you give someone starting this project? An inexpensive hobby woodburner is a tool I think every crafter should have. I recommend Walnut Hallow brand. Be sure to wait at least five minutes for the tool to heat up. Apply minimal amount of pressure when using the tool, just slowly guide it along the gourd - the heat will do the rest. When using gourds for outdoor projects be sure to seal them properly and to bring them in during the winter.
