"Love the Formula 49... the fact that it will almost completely remove ink dye is a reason alone to call it a great product, not to mention how well it works to blend the inks. I just wish it came in a bigger bottle!" -Gloria Crane, Gourd Artist and Instructor

Shown here, beautiful gourd art by Sue Sweder! Sue is well-known for the fantastic, vibrant colors and beautiful carvings incorporated in her gourd art. She likes to mix GourdMasterTM colors using Formula 49.

We love this piece by Dee Hamlin! She achieved a wonderful range of greys by using GourdMasterTM Ink Dyes "Pitch Black" and "White" with Formula 49! Thank you, Dee for sharing your artwork with us on Facebook!

Please Note: The direct links given for the Marketplace gourd art will work if you are using the old version of Facebook, but might now work if you did the upgrade Facebook has been pushing out in the last few weeks. We have sent Facebook multiple texts to try to get the problem fixed but so far there seems to be no way to offer a direct link to an individual post, just a link to the Marketplace Group. Most people feel this is fine since it is fairly easy to find the art pieces we feature here from the main page of the Gourd Art Marketplace.

I have painted six of them and hope to paint more before Christmas. Welburn is my go to for my gourd supplies. Thank you." -Pam Price Reffitt

Creating gourd art has changed my life and enhanced it in so many ways. Thank you for the work you do, so that artists can have such a wonderful “canvas” to work with!
