here's how to use paint to turn the basicterracotta pot into a colorful accent for your home or yard. here's what you'll need:a terracotta pot and saucer, large rubber bands, a small artist's paint brush, all-surfaceprimer, acrylic craft paint, aluminum foil, masking tape, spray shellac, and an x-actoknife. stretch the rubber band around the pot angling it so the final result will looklike you dipped the pot on a tilt. paint the pot below the rubber band with primer. dothe same with the saucer. let them both dry completely. now paint the pot below the rubberband with acrylic craft paint. you may need 2 or 3 coats of paint to get a bright saturatedcolor. do the same with the saucer. let them dry completely between coats. wrap the topunpainted portion of the pot in aluminum foil.


use masking tape to cover any gaps and toseal the foil to the rubber band. apply 2 to 3 coats of spray shellac. do the same withthe saucer and let them dry. scour the paint along the edge of the rubber band to loosenit. cut the rubber band and carefully peel it off. now your pretty pot is ready to addcolor to your home or yard.
