Pinata ink dyes & Gourds
  • What is the best sealer for pinata ink dyes applied to a gourd? I want to seal them under a very high gloss final coat that won't yellow too much over time. Love to do it in one step but if I need to use several steps I need to know what products will be compatible over time on top of this alcohol based dyes. One process I tried resulted in spiderweb type cracks after 6 months and the acrylic gloss finish just began flaking off. Bummer! Ideas?
  • We don't have specific suggestions for sealing, but I did find this great site that may be of assistance.
