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

Nedra's Special Formula 2 oz. Squirt
Nedra's Special Formula is just what you need to
clean & condition stamp pads, remove ink, condition
dry gourd shells & so much more. ASTM D4236 approved
Here's just some of the uses:
- Clean & condition stamp pads
- Condition dry gourd shells allowing water-based
chalk, dye & pigment inks to go on smoother
- Makes it easier to blend colors
- Prevents inks from soaking in & becoming
very dark on gourd shells that are excessively dry
- Removes pigment & dye inks from gourd shells,
stamps & other materials using just a few drops
on a piece of felt, microbrushes or a cloth rag
- Use as a medium to lighten or dilute ink
- Use as a base coat on gourds
- Create a beautiful translucent shimmer by mixing
it with Pearl Ex Powdered Pigments
How to use it as a medium:
- Nedra's Special Formula is used just like the
- It can be applied with any of the
applicators in the applicator & brushes section
of our store front such as: felt or foam applicator
cubes, cotton-tipped applicators, a piece of felt,
Microbrushes, or just about any other applicator
or brush we carry.
- Just squeeze a few drops out on an applicator
or directly into the inks.
- Just like the GourdSupply Products dye inks
you wipe off the excess so it speeds up drying time.
- Cleans up with water.
How to use to clean or condition a stamp pad or dry
- To clean a stamp pad or remove ink from a gourd
just spritz or squeeze some Special Formula to a
dry cloth and wipe your stamp clean.
- To condition a dry gourd shell spritz or squeeze
some onto the cleaned gourd and rub it into the
surface with a dry cloth before
you use the dye inks. This will seal a dry gourd
before applying the inks which will
allow for better coverage to the surface of the
gourd and prevent the ink from soaking into the
It will not flake off or peel when varnish is applied
over it like protective waxes will do. It is very concentrated
so a little goes a long way.
