Here Birdy!

I've completed another birdhouse. Well actually I've had this one done for probably about a month now, but Bob finally got around to putting the metal hanging device on it for me. Now it will have to be put away until next spring when all the little birdies come back to find homes for their new families.

I pyroengraved the details on the gourd, then I applied color with watered down acrylic paints so they are more transparent. Once the paint was dry I sealed it with a marine varnish.
