"Waste Not Want Not" # 2

Apache Tray Design

This is another example of what I do with some of the saved pieces of gourd, the idea of waste not want not carried to another level by making a display plate out of it.

After cleaning and sanding down smooth the piece of gourd, the next step is to draw on all the designs with pencil and then wood burn in all the designs followed by coloring all designs with a dark brown leather dye (done with a small brush) and when dry, display on a plate rack.
