Dried Gourds

I have started growing some of my own gourds in limited varieties and occasionally I get a good deal on some gourds and will have enough to share. Some of these have already been cleaned and some have not.  When I have extra gourds I will make them available to my customers. Please check out my dry gourd page

Craft and Gourd Supplies from Our Amazon Store

Item Description Order

Pro-Imperial Repositional Measurement Paper Tape 1/2 in. x 50 yds. (Imperial scale)

NEW

This product was recommended by Darlene Propp on one of the Gourd Forums. I ordered one and found it to be a great help for laying out my design on a gourd. It was much easier than using brass rings or rubber bands. Once the lines are drawn, the tape can easily be removed or moved so you can safely burn the lines into the gourd after the tape is removed therefore avoiding risks of burning through glue. 

It is now available through our Amazon store. This repositional tape is a must have for gourd artists and other crafters who work on uneven surfaces. It is safe, easy to use and allows you to lay out the design quickly and easily.

Pro Tapes Pro-Measurement Ruler Tape is a Kraft paper tape with adhesive backing which can be used as a repositionable ruler. It is a low chloride content. Non staining repositionable adhesive system. It is a yellow paper tape printed black with markings every 1/8 of an inch and is numbered 1 through 12 and perforated at the end of each 12 or 36 inches. This tape is great for tough situations where a tape measure will not fit or work, such as gourds. This product is safe when used as intended.

NOTE: It is not intended to be used to burn through with a pyrography tool.
