Garden art Sculpted flamingo gourd design by Wilsons Gourds 2011 – Paul B. Wilson enjoyed sculpted various pieces of gourds to make this piece into a flamingo. Karen then proceeded to paint the gourd with acrylics to make it look like a flamingo. Polyurethane indoor/outdoor finish was brushed on by Paul with two coats of finish. A wonderful tropical flamingo it became. We have made many shapes and sizes of flamingos. They are popular with our customers .
