***SALE***ORIGINAL PRICE $60.00

This Spiral with Dots Rainstick is an original gourd creation.

The subtle color combinations of matte and metallic paint coupled with its sweet sound make this a very special rainstick.

A turquoise chip on the stem end is held with a copper wire spiral.

Historically, the rainstick was played in the belief that it could bring about rainstorms.

It is a very labor intensive and multi step process to create a gourd rainstick before the exterior is decorated. About 25 hours to create a gourd rainstick of this size and complexity.

This gourd [cleaned both outside and inside] was hollowed out and wooden dowels arranged helically on its inside surface. [Each dowel takes at least 10 minutes to fully finish] It was then filled partially with rice. When the gourd is upended, the rice falls [hitting the dowels] to the other end of the gourd, making a sound reminiscent of rain falling.

I used Apoxie Sculpt for the 3 dimensional embellishments.

This rainstick measures 34 inches [86.4 cm] from the end to the tip of the stem. It has a 4 inch [10.2 cm] diameter measured at the widest point.

This is an original, one of a kind design and will not be duplicated by me.

Shipping inside the continental US is Priority. It is not the weight but the length of this piece that affects the postage pricing.
