This bowl is a combination of both old and new worlds. I discovered an oil and wax based paint that must be applied from Germany, by hand. Its main function of this paint is used on children's toys, it is chip and stain resistant, .I spent most of six months testing this product and was very happy. It was introduced to my client this year in the outdoor summer markets and the reception was positive, and I was pleased to see repeat sales form the same customers. I have the pleasure of offering you something unique at the branded place that can complete your home décor. Dry - ready to use.
