A Mixed-media Gourd by Sharon Seprodi

     I sketched the design on first with chalk, then woodburned the image on.  I 
then used design master whitewash, in a light coat over it.  Then I enhanced 
the burned areas with chalk pastels, sprayed with Krylon matte.  I did go 
back over some the woodburned areas to darken them a little ( I know its a 
no-no, but I was careful with a small fan blowing away from me :}.  After it 
was complete, I mixed Future floor finish with micro pearl powder and coated 
it several times.  The final finish became very hard when I baked it with the 
polymer clay base on.
