Crafting with Gourds:
Crafting with hard shell gourds is similar to crafting with wood. Any paints or dyes that work well on wood will work on your gourd craft.
Because this design is crafted using a natural gourd, each piece is ever so slightly different to make for a unique artisan piece with natural variance in color and size.
Gourds, like wood, are flammable. Please keep away from an open flame.
Display your gourd where it isn't exposed to excessive moisture and avoid long periods of direct sunlight.
When storing your gourd, choose a cool, dark, and dry environment.
To clean your gourds, wipe them with a soft, dry cloth.
Light your gourd with electric lights (7 watt max) or battery-operated lights only. Never place a lit candle in a gourd because gourds are flammable.
