GourdMaster™ Formula 49 8oz Bottle


"Love the new 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

Available in 2 Great Size Options! A 2oz bottle or an 8oz bottle!

  • Formula 49 works wonders to remove the sticky residue and carbon buildup that is sometimes left on your gourd after woodburning Stick 'n Burn.
  • Formula 49 can be applied as a base coat to condition the gourd shell so that Ink Dyes go on with smooth, even color and blend easily.
  • Formula 49 can also be used for diluting or lightening colors, and to blend Ink Dye colors together so that you get a smooth transition from one color to the next! And that's not all!
  • Made a mistake? Formula 49 will almost completely remove the Ink Dye. Use a piece of Felt or Microbrush with a couple drops of Formula 49 and wipe over any color you want removed or lightened!
  • Formula 49 mixes beautifully with GourdMaster™ Pigment Powders to create a transparent shimmer with just a flash of color, great for things like painting dragonfly or fairy wings.

GourdMaster™ Formula 49 is a ‘must have’ item for gourders! Use it to dilute or lighten Ink Dye or Transparent Acrylic colors or even to remove the colors if you’ve made a mistake! (Also great for removing old leather dye!). Formula 49 is also perfect for blending colors together for a smooth transition from one color to the next.

Formula 49 is also the perfect solution for gourds with dry shells! Due to the nature of gourd shells, colors may come out considerably darker than desired and may leave streaks and splotches. (For the best and most vibrant color results, make sure your shell is properly conditioned and semi-dry using a heating tool before applying colors.)

Formula 49 can be applied as a base coat to condition the gourd shell so that Ink Dyes go on with smooth, even color and blend easily, but unlike wax, Formula 49 will take a varnish over the top! Also mixes beautifully with GourdMaster™ Pigment Powders to create custom ink and paints with a beautiful, transparent shimmer.
