Next Step in my Gourd Project

The wood burning is complete and the lid is cut...this is the removal of the lid... this is really have to wear a mask and scrape out the old dried pulp and seeds.
This is a view of the inside of the lid...uggggllly! But just you wait and see how awesome it is when I scrape and sand and paint it...:)

This is a close up of the design that I carved in to the gourd with a wood burning tool.

This is the design on the other side.

This looks very cool. I love the design you burned. Will you be saving any seeds for your art?
