I decided it was time to try my hand at some crafts again in my spare time.
Because I love to garden I chose to paint some clay pots from inspiration perusing on Pinterest. There is always unlimited inspiration there, sometimes more than we need to see.I decided by the colors of acrylic paint I had on hand.
Gold, of course, being a favorite, its shiny and I love sparkle, like diamonds! Now for me, anything in crafting has to be fun and easy and fast. So, I started with the basic terracotta pot, painted the rim “gold, letting it dry, I painted again. Then I painted the base with pretty turquoise. After letting it dry, (in the desert you dont have to wait long) I used a coarse bristle brush to make the swashes of gold all the way around. I will finish with a coat of Krylon Clear spray paint to seal the acrylic paint and protect the pot from water damage. Easy Peasy!Pop Art Diva Hand Painted Clay Pots
Check these out she has great ideas, I love the one with black squares, I think I need to buy a basket full of pots. Oh and clay pots aren’t just for planting, you can use them for storing craft supplies, on your bathroom counter,
kitchen, the possibilities are endless. What other uses do you think of?
