Create Your Own Tips

Steps for Crafting Your Own Kit at Home

We recommend starting by painting or dyeing your Create Your Own at Home gourd craft kit before assembling your parts and accessories. Gourds are not picky about the type of paint that you use, but make sure to follow the paint instructions for the type of paint that you are using (on the paint container). Once your parts are fully dry you can move on to assembly. Glue your pieces together, and assemble your gourd. You can seal your gourd with Polycrylic for a nice sheen and longevity. We have provided links below on purchasing any supplies that you may need if you are unsure of what to use.

Paints and Dye Tips

The wonderful thing about crafting with gourds is that they are very similar to wood in terms of crafting. You can use any type of paint that you may have from acrylic, oil, and even house paint that you have lying around! Just make sure to follow the instructions that come with your paint for drying and curing time.

We use leather dyes for a lot of our gourd designs. Any type of leather dye would also work, but you must use a sealer such as polyurethane if you choose to dye your gourds. We apply our dyes with a standard paintbrush, but you can be creative and try any technique that you would like.

Here are some paints and dye recommendations for your gourd project that you can buy on Amazon.
