In this class you will learn a fun way to make a bold, elegant statement using metallic embellishments. We will create a textured, metallic rim on the top and inlay a metallic focal piece in the front. We will add a touch of color using translucent ink dyes. To delineate our design, we will inlay leather cord.
This class is for all levels of gourders, but students are required to have basic knowledge of how to use their rotary tool (carver) and how to change bits. Based on expertise, the student might or might not complete the project, but those who do not finish will be given the supplies required to finish. In addition, everyone will be given a detailed set of instructions for this project.
I will supply a class ready gourd along with the metallic accents, dyes, paints, glues and leather cording required. I will have a variety of metallic focal pieces for students to choose from, including the ones pictured. I will supply everything needed for the project with the exception of what I have listed below for each student to bring.
