Since there has been so much interest in the beading that I do on the gourds I have decided to creat a tutorial on the process. I will start this project in hopes of sharing my knowledge and experience with all of you that have show an interest in this art form. I will inform you when I complete it and leave it as a legacy of the gourdbeader.

Jan, I am very excited about you doing this for us. Thanks you so much for sharing your time and talents. I was reading your instructions for putting the wax on and could feel it! Thanks, Sue BTW, Jo wax is easier cause you can add and subtract and it doesn't smear like frosting! How are you?

I suspect we'll find that beeswax, like frosting, covers a multitude of sins.

I am so excited that you are putting this tutorial together. I have a ton of mini gourds and would love to try it some of those, so I won't get discouraged. I figure a little one I might be able to do.

Where can we buy the sheet or bees wax?

They sell all kinds of bee products and they have a wonderful catologue that is just full of great stuff.
I am waiting on a gourd that is coming that I will use for the tutorial. Not sure how this is going to go but I will give it a try.
