This fishing boat is painted in the gorgeous colour aquamarine....sailors of old use to carry aquamarine on their journey to promote safe travel and calm stormy seas.
A lovely personalised gift for a new born or christening celebration.
The boat has been handpainted in off white and aquamarine with a little wooden fish painted in soft grey. Blue, mint and grey fabric flags decorate the boat.
Up to three lines of handstamped text can be added to the boat to make your gift truly unique.
Before personalising the boat I give the paint a light sand to create a distressed seaside look.
The boat and wooden fish are made from sustainable birch plywood. I use a waterbased matt emulsion to paint the boat and embillishments, then to finish the design, a coat of wax is applied. The bunting and flags are made using 100% cotton fabric.
The boat from the bottom to the top of the flag measures 14cm high
The boat base measures 10.5cm across
The little tiddler measures 2cm high and 1cm across
This is a decorative item and not intended as a toy.
