I Have Seen The Future And It Is… Stephen “Gourd-head” Colbert
Apparently, growing gourds in molds is an ancient 500 year old Chinese artform! By creating a mold of a sculpture and placing that mold around a young gourd, the gourd will grow and take the shape of the mold. While this artform was almost lost in the 1970′s, the craft was revived by Mr. Zhang Cairi and the basics have now been condensed into this instructable by Make’s Tim Anderson.
This is one of those times when I’m just surfing the ‘net and realize, “Hey, that would be PERFECT for Stephen Colbert!” I know there are Colbert chocolate mold makers out there. Is anyone game for creating a Colbert gourd using a 3D printed mold?
