Gourd Woodburning

Colorado Trinket Box

To begin my project, a Hyankunari is cut, cleaned, and sanded to create on of my traditional trinket boxes using the techniques shown on our trinket box tutorial.  Next step, I have taken the bowl and with a pencil I lightly sketch the general outlines of the scenery and objects onto the gourd.  You can do this free hand or use a pattern or template, I prefer free hand as it keps me in shape and gives me a feel for what I'm drawing and how I want it to look.
