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.

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.
