Painting on gourds
I just have a question about painting on gourds.
I went to a terrific plant swap at my friend's house this past weekend and was given several large gourds.
I have never painted on these before (I will use acrylics) and was wondering if any of you have done this before?
I was thinking of drilling a hole in them to make bird houses out of for Christmas gifts. They look like they need sanding possibly before painting. Can they be treated the same as a wood painting would be treated?
Thanks for any comments/ suggestions!
