CRAFT MADE FROM DRIED HIGUERA
This is the final product of the Higuera night light project. I have carved extra patterns on the wood of the gourd to give the effect of the shell with more waves. A light varnish has been used to preserve the wood.
Note the clean insides of the Higuera. This will become a little spotted with time and as it dries more. You can also apply a little varnish to preserve the wood like surface. You can also prime it white- i like to leave the natural color, keep in mind the small amount of heat radiating from the bulb, might cause the paint to peel.
