The Painted Gourd
Gourd Bowls and Vases
I finish the interior of my gourd bowls and vases with polyacrylic varnish
The bowls and vases are great for displaying ornies, knickknacks, and dry flowers.
You should not place anything wet inside the bowls or vases.
If you wish to serve food inside one of the gourd bowls, you could slip an actual serving bowl into the gourd bowl first.
If you wish to display real flowers inside one of the gourd vases, you could slip a slender glass or ceramic vase into the gourd vase first.
