"Hi - I just started using flex seal spray for the interior of gourd vases - love it!  Any thoughts on whether or not I can get away with just one coat?  It looks best thin & the cost will add up if I continue to use 2 coats per gourd…"

"Flex Seal is also at Lowes. I also agree with Kim Bilek's comment that the use of a plastic liner in addition to a sealant in the gourd is a good practice to protect the art work and the furniture."

"I got a can of foam sealer (works like the one on TV) from my True Value Hardware store( believe they are a nationwide chain for most town hardware stores) I used it on birdbath cracks and it worked. Didn't even think of using it on my gourds…"

"We have had this discussion.  I use Kool Seal, it works great adds weight.  I actually use it on all thin gourds for stabilization.  It is for roofs, so it is waterproof."

"Thanks for this discussion.  My husband has a couple of cans of Flex Seal (a flexible rubber spray-on sealant) that I'm going to try inside a gourd.  I've already tried glass beads and Modge-Podge (for weight).  bp"
