Description

Celebrate Dia De Los Muertos in style! This tiny gourd has been transformed into a Day of the Dead Sugar Skull. Made from a real spinner gourd, permanent inks are used to create a freehand designed sugar skull. Each gourd is unique! The gourd is then covered with an acrylic glaze to create shine and to protect the design. This Day of the Dead "Gourdament" makes a great year-round piece of decorative art, unique Christmas ornament, or Halloween decoration. A small metal screw eye is affixed to the top of the gourd for easy hanging.

Finished Day of the Dead gourdaments are approximately 2 to 2.5 inches tall and 1.5 inches wide. The round part of the gourd is about the size of a ping-pong ball to golf ball.

In order to make the gourdament of your dreams, please select the main color and design you prefer. I will then add accent colors and flourishes to complete your sugar skull.

*Please note -- as these gourds are custom made, please allow 5-7 days for completion of your order.

Some basic gourd info:
o Gourds are non-edible squash.
o There are different curing methods. Our favorite is to scrape off the thin outer layer of fresh gourds then hang them to dry out. The drying process averages about 1 to 2 years depending on gourd variety and size. Spinner gourds do take less time...around 6 months.
o Once gourds are fully cured, they basically become wood and will last accordingly. Just like wood, they will rot if left in water, but otherwise will last indefinitely.
