The outside of the bowl has been hand painted with 5 layers of colour, black, blue, red orange and yellow. The colours have created dark to lighter tones of brown/bronze, finished with a shimmer of mica powder to create a subtle sparkle. To protect the colour the outside has been sprayed with 5 coats of gloss lacquer.
Inside the bowl is finished with food safe wax, this makes it suitable for dry food such as fruit or snacks, or maybe just leave it empty to show off the contrasting colours of the inner and outer areas.
Use a slightly dampened cloth to clean the bowl after any dry food use, then buff the wood with a dry lint free cloth.
