GourdSupply Products Pigment Inks


Check out the new GourdSupply Products (aka Memories) Pigment Inks. The are due in soon. Right now there will be 10 mid-range colors that will allow you to create a custom color palette by blending colors.
These inks will work on a wide variety of surfaces. I have tested them out on paper, wood & gourds & had great results.
The are water-based like the dye Inks (aka: Gourd Ink Dyes, Ink Dyes) but use a pigment carrier rather than dye.
The Pigment inks are thicker & more opaque & perform like a combination dye ink/acrylic paint.
I think you will love them as much as I do.

The colors & items are listed on the website but the PayPal buttons will not be on until I have them in stock & ready to ship...hopefully in about a week.

The color samples are done on Bristol paper (top) & Plywood (bottom)

In an attempt to lower prices for shipping to you I have opted to try to ship burners via USPS Priority Mail whenever possible. In some cases I will still use FedEx.

I tried to price the burners to include shipping but it became very confusing to customers when they ordered other items along with a burner so I have adjusted the shipping chart within PayPal for order totals at the higher end. As always I will make an adjustment & issue a refund if you were charged more than my costs.

I truly wish I could reduce shipping costs more but I don't have control over the cost to process orders & carriers keep increasing their prices. If I sold everything at full retail price I could afford to chop the shipping & handling prices but I can't do both. 

So, now the prices on the burners have been dropped & the shipping will be calculated as it always has...based on the total amount of your order.

The prices have all been updated as of today (5/29/17) & not retroactive to previous purchases.

Note that when you select the "regular" shipping option for an address within the Continental USA it will ship via USPS Priority Mail or FedEx Ground only. If you need expedited shipping you will need to click on one of those options when you check out. If you are charged more than my costs when the order is processed you will receive a refund of the excess. Note that if you are opting for expedited shipping the order will ship by FedEx Express instead of USPS.

If you are ordering Razertip items directly on the website (ie: the Carving & Woodturning Kits) the shipping charge has a flat shipping charge that is added upon checkout. If you are ordering other items PayPal will calculate the shipping charges for all the other items & add it on to the flat shipping fee for the kits. If the other items you ordered are not Razertip brands your order will ship in 2 separate packages.

Happy Holidays at Sawdust Connection

Every day at Sawdust Connection is Cyber Monday. We don't inflate prices &
then offer discounts, we don't have sales, we just have low prices every day!

The holiday shopping started early this year but I"m keeping on top of things. 

Due to increase thefts of packages all large packages (that won't fit in a mail box) that are going to residential addresses are going to require a signature for your protection. I know it's a little inconvenient but it's for your protection.

At the moment I'm well stocked with burners, inks, etc but that can change pretty quickly this time of year so if you know what you want don't wait until the last minute.

Happy holidays to everyone!

Nedra Denison,
Sawdust Connection

This is Nedra's New Exclusive Gourd Artists Pyrography Pen Set

This set is available only in the HD version & it is only available from me.

These are the most versatile & popular tip styles used by gourd artists & should meet the needs of most gourd artists. Over the years I have found that the HD versions perform better on gourds & are more popular so this set is only available in an HD version.

Some of the pens are available individually in standard versions.

I recommend you use these pen with an HD (Red tip) cord for the best overall performance.

Nedra's 5 pc Piece Gourd Pyrography Pen Set includes one each:
  • HD14SM Round-Heeled Knife
  • HD30 M Medium Spoon Shader
  • HD5L Long Spear/Gourd Cutter
  • HD5S Small Spear

You can find it on my website along with photos of each tip style:
