After designing the gourd bowl, each is given a couple of coats of an acrylic finish on the outside and the inside is usually given a protective acrylic finish. This type of interior finish allows the bowl to be used and wiped clean with a damp cloth. NOT WASHABLE
Some gourds that have food safe listed on them are given a coating of beeswax.
