I was asked to do a demo carving using a gourd as material; using burning tools this bird is the result.
I cut off a section of the bottom to allow the Gourd to sit properly. I then
made the tail piece and wings from the removed bottom. I used a
burning pen to give feather impressions. There is a slot in the body
and the tail is inserted at that point. The wings are glued on with
clear glue. A fun project and easy material to work with.
