GOURD bud flower vase hand painted abstract. Handmade art in BLUES, decorative alcohol ink.
This gourd was grown and hand painted by me using a variety of alcohol inks! This turned out with the prettiest blues and a little green meshed in!! It measures 6 1/2" tall, approx. 6" across. The opening is 1 1/4". It does have 3 coats of a non-yellowing protective sealer on it. It is designed as a bud vase for silk flowers but could be used for fresh flowers if you first insert into a flower tube (do not let water sit inside gourd). A single silk flower sits lovely!
I recommend all hand painted/inked/dyed gourds be kept out of direct sunlight, to help preserve the colors.
The vase is pretty lightweight and I always suggest the customer put some pebbles in the bottom to weigh it down.
