What's the difference between Premium Quality and Standard Quality gourds? Premium Quality Gourds are top quality gourds with thick, high-quality shells and a shape that is mostly symmetrical without flat spots.

Standard Quality gourds are still great gourds, they just didn't qualify as a Premium gourd because of one or more small issues, such as a lopsided shape, small cracks or shell blemishes. But with a Gourd Stand or a little Wood Texture and Filler and some artistic inspiration they become beautiful art pieces, and they average 30% LESS than Premium Quality gourds!!

"I have used various inks including leather dyes, GourdMaster™ inks and the newer Transparent Acrylics are the BEST! I love the way they flow over the gourd skin, dye evenly, and blend well without having overlapping lines and smears." 

"I also love the way they are able to blend with other products on the line and can be diluted or made like a watercolor wash with their sister product Formula 49. If you have not tried them you're missing out!"-Debbie Guzman

How do Transparent Acrylics Compare to Ink Dyes?

GourdMaster™ Transparent Acrylics have the same, beautiful semi-transparent quality as GourdMaster™ Ink Dyes, but because they are made using pigment rather than dye as the main carrier of color, they appear more bold and vibrant.

Unlike a dye, the pigments act to "block" some of the background color of the gourd, making the pigment colors stand out more. With Transparent Acrylics you get the rich colors and work abilityyou might find in an acrylic paint, combined with the wonderful, semi-transparent look of an Ink Dye. It's like having the best of both worlds! 

Wipe them on with felt just like you would Ink Dye for a more transparent look, or apply them with a paint brush or even a sponge applicator to really 'build up' the color. They are also easily applied to smaller areas using a Microbrush or a Fine Tip Applicator.

*Free shipping offer excludes Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and International destinations. This offer only applies to the lower 48 states. Free shipping applies to the above product special only. Additional items added will be charged a shipping fee. Items are scheduled to ship by 8/5/16.

Gourd Art Gallery
This Week's Featured Artist is Jennifer Hershman

Jennifer fell in love with Gourd Art after attending a Gourd Art retreat in 2013. She truly felt she had found her calling. She is now pursuing that dream with the creation of her business, “Galleria Gourds”.

Jennifer has an AA in Welding, as well as in Graphic Design; she hopes to someday combine her love of metal art with her love of gourd art. Her love of nature and the natural beauty of her home state of Montana are often the inspiration for her gourds. Jennifer has spent her life exposed to the creativity of her father, Master Gunsmith, Jerry Fisher. It is also through this exposure that she found her love of art. 21 years later she says she still loves the simple beauty of them whether as a piece of art, or left in their natural state to appreciate their individual patterns created by nature.

"Having grown up in Montana, I try and create work that portrays the natural beauty of the Northwest. A gourd artist in the Northwest is not something you see a lot of, but I find gourds to be interesting in and of themselves—their shapes are interesting, and due to the fact that they are organic and not perfect, it is at times a challenge to find ways to work within those imperfections, this is a challenge which I truly enjoy"

Jennifer makes her home in Arlee, Montana, which she shares with her husband, eight horses, two dogs, and numerous barn cats.

She has also been featured in “Montana Women” magazine, and her gourds have been written about in "Mountain Living" magazine (Sept. and Oct. 2014) and "The Complete Book of Gourd Carving." She has won numerous awards with her gourd art, including 2015 peoples choice at the Arizona Gourd Festival and 2016 Grand Master Exibit.

Be sure to check out more artwork and info on Jennifer's website, Galleria Gourds!

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."

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!
