While Supplies Last, Get a Free Bottle of Black Gourd Paint with Any Order of $40 or More (a $9.99 Value)!

GourdMaster™ Gourd Paint is unlike regular acrylic paints you find in craft stores. It is thicker, more durable, and also comes pre-mixed with a sealer.

The BLACK Gourd Paint makes a great opaque coverage anywhere on the gourd surface and it also works perfect for covering the inside of your gourds, simply mix with GourdMaster™ Gourd Varnish. The varnish will act as an extender so you can use less Gourd Paint even when you are paining the most porous gourds!

You can even use Black Gourd Paint as an all over color for a matte finish on your gourd art like in the pieces shown below! Be sure to watch the video "Fun Ways to Use Pigment Powders" below!

New "Cool Touch" Woodburning Pens Now Available!

Cool-Touch Pens come with an extra flexible lightweight cord and comfortable foam grip!

The NEW 'Cool-Touch' pens that come with your Classic and Deluxe Nibsburner units have a cool-touch pen body, which means they don't get hot like other pens do. The New Cool-Touch Woodburning Pens are made with a special material that is smooth and comfortable to hold.

Another feature that makes this pen really easy and comfortable to use is the lightweight, ultra-flexible cord. If you've ever used a pen with a thick cord or a heavy cord, you know how uncomfortable it is to hold, and it actually tires your hand and wrist and makes woodburning a lot less enjoyable because you're fighting with your cord the whole time.

Pictured above, gourd art by Christy Barajas using only
the new "Cool-Touch" Woodburning Pens!

The cords on the NEW 'Cool-Touch' Pens, however, are so flexible and lightweight, it makes them very comfortable to use for extended periods of time because they don't pull on your wrist as you move the pen. These pens enhance your woodburning experience because you can woodburn for hours and still be more comfortable than if you were using a different pen.

These pens also come with a really soft foam guard, which is thicker and softer than other Foam-Guards on the market. It's also great if you have arthritis because the size of it makes it more comfortable and easier to hold than skinnier foam grips.

Both the Standard (comes with First Step) and Cool-Touch pens are made with extra strong tips, so they're really durable and they won't bend or break as easily as a pen made with thinner material. These pens are compatible with all 3 units, the First Step, the Classic, and Deluxe Dual-Port. (The First Step comes with the Standard Pen, but you can always purchase the Cool-Touch Pen separately if you want. The Classic and Deluxe Dual-Port come with Cool-Touch Pens.

All of the pens are fixed body, fixed tip pens, which means the tips don't come off and the cords don't detach; the reason for that is, fixed-cord, fixed-tip pens are much more reliable and you're not going to have the problems with heat loss that you can have with pens that have detachable cords and tips; when you are woodburning you really want to have a steady, consistent heat, and the best way to get that is with a pen that has the fewest number of connections possible.

Pictured above, adapters are now available so a Cool-Touch pen can be used with your Bolt Woodburning unit!
(Can also be used with BurnMaster, Everglade and DetailMaster Woodburning Units)

See All the Available Cool-Touch Pens Below!

All Pens come with a 1-Year Unconditional Warranty,
which means if you break it or bend it, simply send it back and we'll repair it for FREE!

NEW Woodburners Now Available!
Starting at Reg. $154.80, Just $114.95!

Introducing Adjustable Heat Woodburners by Nibsburner! These units have an adjustable dial, which means you can change the temperature to whatever setting you desire. This is important when burning on gourds because each gourd shell varies by density and other factors.

Above: The 3 different models of woodburners by Nibsburner each come with 1 or 2 Nibs pens PLUS they are all compatible with Razertip pens AND Detail Master pens!*

*(Note: an adapter must be used with Detail Master pens and is included with both the Classic and Deluxe Dual Port units; Detail Master pens are not recommended to be used with the "First Step" unit because they require a higher heat output than this smaller unit can typically produce).

NEW Fili-Point Burr"The [Fili-Point] burr is awesome! The cutting action is powerful and so smooth, like cutting through butter, so it leaves a clean edge - this means less sanding for me (always a good thing!).  From tiny filigree holes to larger cut-outs, this burr easily does it all!"

"I love that I can just plunge it right into the gourd and it doesn't grab. Because of it's size it fits into tiny corners, so I can cut really intricate shapes."  

- Mary Gehley

We named this burr the"Fili-Point" burr because it is designed specifically for creating micro-filigree and large filigree. It is also strong enough to cut through Welburn's famous thick shelled gourds, so you can make intricate cuts, and your own gourd cut-outs!

The Fili-Point burr has a grit coarse enough to cut through thick shells with ease, yet fine enough to leave a nice, smooth finish on the cut line!

The Fili-Point burr is the most popular burr sold by Welburn Gourd Farm. Click on the button below to get your Fili-Point Burr today!
