Yes hi Vicki, the little carved green gourd is filled with sandalwood that has been soaked in water, it is not the rare sandalwood but a common Hawaii wild one. It takes about 3 weeks for the color to "leach" through. I will be posting more photos as the process finishes.
Thanks for the compliments. If you go to my photos there is an explaination on "gourd skins" under the phillips bowl photo's. It is a water slide decal that is melted into the gourd so that you don't have edges.
