This Mermaid Dish is 100% handmade. The bowl/dish like shape is shallow and made from paper clay the perfect size to hold a small collection of crystals, shells, keys, potpourri, etc. The dish is approx. 4 inches in circumference. The dish may loosen up if left for long periods of time in a humid environment but should stiffen back up after a few days when put back in a dry environment. The bowls are not perfect and are not meant to be. I use a more organic approach when making items with paper clay it's part of my natural style as an artist, imperfections are expected and part of the personality of the piece. Not recommended for outdoor use. Decor purposes only. This is not food or liquid safe. I used paper clay, acrylic paint and 2 coats of protective clear gloss spray. Shells and crystals are photo props and do not come with the dish. The listing is for the dish only.
