Day 11 of AEDM

Click on the picture above for additional Day 11 creative goodness!

I learned that silicone doesn’t like to stick to anything but silicone.  This is something I didn’t take into consideration when I ordered the corn kernels. I’d figure it out/wing it/make it work dagnabbit when the time came.  This is a test kernel with a tube of caulking I found that we used around our sink.  If this doesn’t work, I have an unopened tube of silicone to try.  This paint dribble on cardboard is my testing spot so I don’t ruin the crown.

Next up is adding more Snow-Tex to the remainder of the Gourd Trouble doll’s body.

And, last but certainly not least, here are a few pictures of the gourds in various stages of the drying process.

That’s it for Day 11 from the Flatlands of NW Ohio. Time to head into The Land of Lunch. I’m very glad we are once again on a hybrid schedule! Stay safe AEDM family & have an awesome day!

  1. I so enjoyed seeing your gourds as they are nearly ready to be harvested. And of course, I know you will turn them into something fun and interesting, too.

    You were wise to test the corn pieces. I often forge ahead and make a mess of things. Seems you are not about to trust that crown getting messed up after all the work you’ve already put into it.

  2. I love this post. You know anything with gourds. Enjoy your day.

    I was going to suggest the silicone used in bathrooms…hope it does the trick for you. The Sno-Tex doll is looking quite interesting. I’m looking forward to seeing it finished.
    So you grow all your own gourds? I’ve never seen gourds here in Australia but I’m sure they are grown somewhere.

    I’ve had your blog open in my browser tab for days as I want to catch up properly with all your AEDM posts. I’ll be back. 🙂

    Have a great day!

    I like seeing how you are making this turkey, and what you learn along the way. Sounds like you are making progress.
