This is an egg gourd and yep, it’s shaped just like an egg!
This is an egg gourd with part of a mini bottle gourd glued to it.
These two gourds were the beginning of my Creative Paperclay project. They were the “skeleton” so to speak for my clay to be applied on. I do get the gourds wet before I cover them and mold the clay to look like these pictures:
To me, it’s just so much fun turning that little humble gourd and some clay into something that so neat for Halloween. Oh, in case you are wondering the whiskers on the cat are actually horse hair. I had some to use on a different gourd project. Once the clay was dry (it did take about a day and a half) It was time to paint. FUN!
The painting of the Halloween cat and raven turned out super spooky neat I thought:
