Please visit the techniques page for free tutorial videos.  I share how to use inks, embossing powders, heat activated glue, varnish and so many more products and techniques.  Please visit again soon and be the first to know about the new products and techniques coming in late spring or early summer.

The Gallery shows the latest designs and new class offerings.

I hope to accomplish many new things this New Year, but for starters,  I just completed the first two of many to come instructional videos.  They can be found in the shopping cart in the DVD category.  Many people have requested that I provide the needed visuals of my techniques.  I am told how overwhelmed you are by watching my demos at shows and then how difficult it is to remember once you get home.  I want you to be happy with your purchase of products, and most of all, to know how to use them.  I hope you will find these tutorial videos a very useful tool in learning how to use products.  They can be viewed on your computer, TV or DVD player.  I welcome any questions and look forward to hearing from you.

I Welcome  our winter visitors and  gourd friends back to town and look forward to hearing from you.  Please give me a call to schedule a class for the latest designing and coloring techniques.  Classes at home are one on one and  to small groups.  I will travel to you for larger group requests.  My teaching is a very sensible approach to designing a gourd project and anyone with the desire to learn can achieve amazing results no matter your skill level.  Many beginners to gourd art love the one on one  attention because we can address your personal desire for learning the arts.  Please call to schedule a date that fits both our schedules.  Call 520-298-6978  Classes are usually all day from 10 am to 4 pm and prices will vary according to product use and added embellishments.  If you are interested in learning the use of specific products or a technique, the fee is $20.00 an hour and you can determine the time needed for this visit.   You can also bring your unfinished gourd projects that you don’t know how to complete.  We will give it the finish you will be happy with.

If there is something you want and don’t see it, please contact me I will be happy to help you.  Contact Maria at 520-298-6978

Thank you for visiting Maria’s Art Creations


Thank you for visiting Maria’s Art Creations. My name is Maria Dellos. I pioneered the use of Ink Dyes on Gourd Art. I have 35 years experience in the arts and 20 years experience with rubber stamping. In 2000, I discovered the world of gourd art and proceeded to carry over all my experience to gourds. In my book, “New Gourd Art with Ink Dyes”, I show you how to use ink dyes and other products that support my techniques. Many patterns are included plus valuable information to help you in designing gourd art.

If you would like a short version of my techniques for no cost, click on techniques on the home page or visit www.youtube.com/mariadellos.  You can watch how I use  Memories Inks, Embossing Powders, Accent Powders, Metal Leafing, Heat Activated Glue, Wax and Varnish and much more.  These videos are very valuable for quick information about using specific products, however, it is only a short introduction and does not replace the valuable hands on learning in my classes. Classes are flexible for dates and times. I offer classes one on one and to groups, bring a friend and enjoy a day of gourd art like you never experienced.

In my shopping cart there are a few choices you can make for final payment. PayPal is available but you must remember your PayPal password. You may send a check and once received, your package will be shipped. You may use your credit card; Visa, Master Card, Discover Card by clicking on the option, phone order, and I will accept your card by phone. Sorry, I do not take American Express.

I would also like to remind you that items are added to the shopping cart periodically. If you are wanting an item but don’t see it, please send me a message. I may have it but if I don’t, I will advise you of someone who may have that item.

My plan is to add so much more information, class info, new techniques and new products as soon as possible. Please visit often to see the new up-dates. Thank you for visiting. I look forward to hearing from you.

Best Wishes,

Maria Dellos
