Nedra's Special Formula 2 oz. Squirt Top Bottle


Nedra's Special Formula is just what you need to clean stamp pads, remove ink, condition dry gourd shells & so much more.

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 ink from gourd shells & other materials using just a few drops on a piece of felt or 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:

  • Nedra's Special Formula is used just like the ink dyes
  • 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 chalk & dye inks you wipe off the excess so speed up drying time.
  • Just clean up with water

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.
