Here are some progression shots of a custom ordered gourd ornament that I just completed.

The first two are in grey scale. Look at all those teeny, tiny dots! I love stippling! :)

Here all of the little details are burned in and finished, the stem cut, and the eye screw put in place.

I added a transparent red on the large hearts and a lighter shade of transparent red on the outer rim. At the time of these last two photos the ornament has been given 2 coats of finish. I didn't take these in a light box, so forgive me for the glare.

This is it for today's post. I'm still fighting that broken, abscess tooth--can't wait to get it pulled on the 18th..
