Pastels on gourds
3 Replies

I was wondering if anybody has used the various. Pastels on a gourd if so I would like to chat with you and see the gourd. Wonder if they would hold up over time?

Hi Janice, I just love your work. The latest leaf gourds are beautiful. Can you tell me, is the dark part of the stippling and leaf lines just from the wood burning or do you add black to them somehow?

Janice, Bonnie Gibson had an article in her newsletter several months ago on Powertex.  She and I played around with it one day and the petroglyphs is what I came up with.  It could easily be in a newsletter from 4 months ago.  Powertex is a thick liquid that reminded me of wall paint and sort of smelled like that too.  We just dipped the tshirt material in it and placed it on our gourds.  It drys hard and sticks to the any surface.  Bonnie brought over the brown and white.  There are probably other colors too.  You might Google it and find out about it.  Phyllis

Janice, if you make it to Wuertz, be sure and stop by and say hello.  You do need a thick gourd for carving but part of the design on the petroglyphs was pieces of old cotton t-shirts soaked in Powertex and draped over the gourd.  You can see just a bit of the texture from the tshirt but not enough to bother me.  Glad to have you for a friend.  Phyllis

Hi Janice,  This is Kathy, wife of Gary Kvalheim.  Gary doesn't use the computer so that task is delegated to me.  He does not use any clay or other materials on his gourds.  They are entirely carved with a dremel tool.  There have been a few instances where he has used actual leaves or vines but this is rare.  For his bases he uses either part of another gourd or leather strips.  Other than that, they are all gourd.

Janice I love your gourds.  Beautiful work.  C
