Firefly Serenade Lantern

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I really like how the carving enhances the design. 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.

What you will need

  • Dried gourds
  • Memories Ink dyes in red
  • orange
  • and yellow
  • Apoxie sculpt
  • woodburner
  • rotary carver
  • and an electric candle
