Jack and Hayseed Gourd
by Sharon Chinn
Paint “Hayseed” the scarecrow atop his punkin friend “Jack”. These cute country characters are painted on a bottle gourd that is approx. 9″ tall. A reduced drawing is included that would work on a smaller gourd approx. 6″ tall.
They are painted with Traditions Artist Acrylics and I’ve included conversions to Americana Acrylics. The hat brim is canvas paper or Roclon, and the hair is made of raffia.
I’ve got a bad cold this week, so video is out of the question, you really don’t want to listen to me cough and sneeze my way through, so instead I’ve put in lots of step-by-step illustrations.
