Beans Worked Better
Today I couldn't wait to add the marbles I got to my rainstick that I'm making out of a gourd. Only they didn't sound right. They seemed too heavy. So I ran in the house and got some dried beans instead. I put those in and gave it a test run. It sounded wonderful, just like I'd expect a rainstick to sound. But then I had to dump them out because I still have to grind down the nubs of the skewers I glued inside. Right now it looks a bit like a porcupine. After that I can put the beans back in, glue the gourd top back on and decorate it. How fun!
