Gourd Rainstick

First thing this morning I checked my gourd purse lining and then did another layer of finish.

Then I got busy on the rainstick I started a few weeks ago. I have just about all of the skewers glued in. I just read about another artist that doesn't even bother with the skewers. She just uses chicken wire inside hers. I'll have to try that too. I don't see why it wouldn't work, and it would be a lot simpler. Plus it won't leave a surface full of holes to paint over. It pays to be open to new ideas.

I need to get back out there and put another coat inside the purse and clean up my toys for another day because we are supposed to go hiking this evening.

Using chicken wire sounds like a good idea!

So many ideas, so little time.
