gourd art by Christy BarajasThese gourds were not quite good enough to qualify as our premium quality, craft-ready gourds, so we decided to offer them at a HUGE discount as a "Blowout Box" of pre-cut and cleaned gourds!

(Pictured right, gourd art with red flowers by Christy Barajas; this piece was made using a bargain quality gourd like those in the Blowout Box.)

Here's what people have to say about our bargain quality gourds:

"Just a note to say that I received my boxes of bargain gourds. I cannot tell you how pleased I am with them! If these are the bargain gourds I can't wait to order the 'perfect' gourds!" -Lane Alexander

“I received my half-price [Bargain] boxes today and was totally in awe...Who in their right mind WOULDN’T purchase these gourds at such an unbelievable value!” - Barbara K. Lohman, MO

And the best part is, there's no cleaning needed! The pre-cut gourds have been cleaned both inside and out, and the mini gourds have also been cleaned!

Note: Gourds are cut straight across or at a slight angle:

Gourd Art by Gloria Crane

Pictured above, gourd art by Gloria Crane featuring Transparent Pigment Powders for the dragonfly wings. Notice in the close-up on the right how the cattails show through the wings due to the transparent effect of the powders.

Dragon Fly by Gloria Crane

Shown above, Gloria Crane shows the left side of the dragonfly wings painted using Transparent Pigment Powder mixed with Gourdmaster™ Gourd Varnish. You can see as the image turns away from the light (shown left) it looks transparent, and when it turns towards the light (shown right) it catches the color, similar to a real wing.

In addition to applying Transparent Pigment Powders wet by mixing them with Gourd Varnish, Formula 49, or Gel Glaze, they can also be applied dry using Heat Activated Glue.

Gourd art by Gloria Crane

The dragonfly wings were created using the new Transparent Pigment Powders.

Heat Activated glue comes in Clear and Black. Use Black to create an opaque look with your Transparent Pigment Powders. which will make the colors look bolder, as seen above in the multi-colored dragonfly wings by Gloria Crane.
