Bodhran by SageKorppi Bodhran by SageKorppi
Unlike my other drum ("Song Dog"), which I had the opportunity to make myself, I bought the drum (bodhrán) for this one. I then painted this design on it. The three spirals is a celtic petroglyph, and the bird is a raven.

Painted in 2006, photo in 2011. (This is actually after a massive flood in my area. The drum was salvaged and after some washing and sanitizing, survived!)

*feels proud to have heard this drum in person* My little drum is so neglected.

I'm so happy that the drums made it.

Not very hard, honestly. With the india ink the drum was a little resistant to taking the ink (it was like putting water on wax paper), but more brush strokes worked it in. Acrylic is just like working on a canvas :)

If you are interested in more of a "primitive" drum, ~Foxfeather248 sells gorgeous drums/drum kits: [link] (you can get them unpainted if you want to do your own design).

I've always wanted to put this [link] on something (I had it one a t-shirt, but the t-shirt wore out). Perhaps another drum!

And any other questions you have, don't hesitate to note me :)

I'm so glad this survived! It's too darn pretty to be wrecked up by that calamity!
