Gourd Ink Dyes and Pigment Powders

I have been quite busy lately helping my husband build a privacy fence for our backyard so I have been a bad blogger. I hope to be a little more productive within the next 2 months by posting some new gourd creations.

In the meantime, I wanted to share a few new purchases with you. I have wanted to use gourd ink dyes for quite a while now but just haven't made the purchase. Well since I love the earthy rustic look of some of the fall colors I decided to make an order of some Gourd Master products. Wow these are just wonderful colors. There are so many to choose from I wanted them all!

The colors of the pigments powder here are: Spring Green, Red Russet, Antique Bronze and Pumpkin Orange. I also chose the folowing ink dyes: Sage, Berry, Blue Denim, Sienna and Deep Orange. You can put the pigment powders over the inks for a beautiful metallic luster. I also am trying the Protecting Wax instead of the spar varnish for a more muted rustic feel.

Please check back for pics of projects I have created with my new goodies!
