A big, handmade paper mache bowl that features colorful stripes and texture. This is a papier maché bowl handmade by me, from salvaged paper. I shredded old newspapers, junk mail, bills, etc., made them into a pulp, then formed this big beautiful bowl. The outside features a fun, bumpy, wavy texture created using salvaged materials, while the inside has a smoother finish. I handpainted it, leaving just the natural newsprint gray rim exposed to play against the painted design. I handpainted the outside a warm, cheerful green and gave it a matte finish. On the inside, I painted a cream color then added a series of hand drawn multicolored lines. The inside is glazed with a high gloss sealant to create a gorgeous, gleaming contrast to the outside and an eyecatching piece of art. Display this beauty as is, or use it to display fruit, hold yarn, decorative objects, or whatever you like!

About papier mache: papier mache pulp is a tough, yet lightweight material. This piece won't shatter if dropped, but can be chipped, scuffed, or otherwise damaged if abused! Intended for light use and decor. Not food safe. Finished with several layers of protective sealants and glazes, so it is resistant to a little moisture. Prolonged exposure to moisture will, however, damage this piece. Wipe clean with a damp cloth.

*This listing is for the bowl only! All other items pictured are for example only.

*** Unless otherwise indicated, ALL of my papier mache items are made from TRUE recycled paper and other reclaimed materials, not preshredded storebought mache.

Colors: green, gray, cream, assorted colors
Measures: approx. 10.25in across x 4.25in tall (26cm x 11cm)
