This Butterfly Ink Pot or Paint Pot Holder was created with calligraphers in mind, but painters and artists could also use it for holding paints. The butterfly was cut out using a scroll saw and then the holes drilled for the ink/paint pots. This particular example has 2 large screw top pots and 2 small flip top pots as well as 2 medium screw top pots. The finished product has been hand sanded with 5 different grits of sandpaper from 180 up to 600 for a smooth wood finish and then hand rubbed with walnut oil. A Polycrylic coating (3 coats) may be added to this piece to help resist ink and or paint stains. The butterfly is approximately 10" x 12".
