"I love the gourd cleaning ball. I have used many, many tools from hand sanding, paint strippers, sanders, gourd wands and genies, I have found this tool to be my favorite and use it nearly all the time now." Dianne Connelly, artist and instructor

"Your company is terrific! ...I used my new Easy Cleaner Balls..  I am in Heaven!  They are GREAT!!!!!!!!   No more sore fingers, hands, wrists etc... In 5 short minutes I cleaned a gourd that would normally take hours.  And the finish that the fine grit leaves is wonderful. These make the worst part of gourd art (cleaning the inside) a snap. I am calling all of my 'gourd friends' to let them know about this great tool.  Thank You!" - Ivy Allen, South Jordan, Utah 

Tired of scraping out the insides of your gourds by hand? Unhappy with the uneven surface made when using an electric drill with paint-stripper attachment? Then you'll LOVE the Easy Cleaner Ball by GourdMaster!

In just a few minutes you can go from this.... To this!

The Easy Cleaner Ball has a durable, gravel-like surface that removes even the most stubborn
dried gourd pulp in seconds flat!

cleaner ball2Never before has cleaning the inside of your gourds been so fast and easy. Simply attach the ball to your electric hand drill and the spinning action of the drill does all the work!

Because the Cleaner is round, it forms to the curve of the gourd rather than creating uneven surfaces like a paint-stripper attachment.

Gourd Art by Madonna Watermon using a Pre-Cut Craft Ready Gourd Pot and Stick n' Burn!


Stick 'n Burn is so much fun to use because it is so easy to get great results! Why waste hours tracing lines and struggling with messy carbon paper to get your design onto your gourd for wood burning when you can do it in one easy step?

With "Stick 'n Burn" Design Transfer Sheets" your design is printed directly on the clear transfer sheet and because it has an adhesive backing, all you have to do is cut it out, stick it to your gourd and start wood burning through it! Once you’re done, just peel off and throw away the Stick ‘n Burn and you have your design beautifully wood burned onto your gourd!
