Heavy Cast Decorative Metal Ring

These rings are beautifully cast and polished, and have a lovely design on the rim.  They're great when you want a special treatment for the rim of a gourd.  They only come in one size.  The inner opening is about 2 1/2" wide and the outer edge is about 3 1/2" wide.   I've used Apoxie sculpt as an adhesive and also as the perfect way to create a smooth blend between the gourd shell and the ring.

3-D Brass Butterflies and Dragonflies

 Butterfly wings may be carefully bent upward.  The large Dragonflies are shipped flat, but wings may be bent if desired.  Because they are real brass, they may be patined with oxidizing solutions or may be painted or  torched for color. Glue directly to the gourd surface; attach with a small amont of Apoxie Sculpt, or solder on a small bit of brass rod for mounting into a drilled hole.  
Example to the right has a body painted with acrylics, and patina oxidized wings.

*Cones are perfect for neat insertions of horsehair into gourd masks.  Simply tie the end of a small bundle of horsehair together with a bit of thread, and use a bit of glue to secure the tied area.

When dry, snip off any excess hair from the end of the glued bundle, and then add a bit more glue and slide the trimmed end into the cone.  

Drill a small hole in the mask, then glue the cone into the hole.  We recommend  PC-Universal glue for horsehair insertions - it's strong like epoxy, and it dries clear.  It cleans up easily with water.
