- One unglazed terracotta flower pot
- Black acrylic paint
- Pilot silver marker pen
- Quick-drying matt spray varnish
- Fine sanding paper
- 10/32” paint brush
- Few sheets of old newspaper to protect the working area
- Suitable artificial plant
Lightly sand the pot before starting to paint.
Clean the pot with warm soapy water and allow it to dry completely in the sun.
Paint a layer of the black acrylics over the whole pot. First paint the inside and allow it to dry. Add a second coat if necessary. Then, paint the outside of the pot, and allow it to dry thoroughly. Paint a second coat, if necessary, to obtain a nice even look.
Use the Pilot silver marker pen to draw a stick girl, and add some naïve style grass, flowers and birds.
Use the marker pen to add a border pattern to the top of the pot.
Spray the pot with the spray varnish. Remember to work in a well-ventilated area when spraying the varnish.
- Add the artificial plant to the pot.
