INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Gather the materials.
    Step 0 Example
  2. With Pure White, paint a basecoat around the bottom part of each pot, leaving the rims unpainted.
    Step 1 Example
  3. With various paintbrushes, create patterns around the pots in bands. (Here I used Classic Black loaded on a small flat brush to make vertical lines.)
    Step 2 Example
  4. Moving on up the pot, create the next band by making a diamond design with a dot of paint in the middle with the handle end of the paintbrush dipped in Classic Black.
    Step 3 Example
  5. For the next pot, paint Classic Black lines with a small round brush, varying the line direction.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Moving up the pot, using the handle end of the paintbrush dipped in Classic Black, make a band of dots.
    Step 5 Example
  7. To give visual interest, vary each band of design patterns.
    Step 6 Example
  8. Vertical lines and shapes look nice with the black and white color palette.
    Step 7 Example
  9. For the third pot, basecoat the bottom with Classic Black. Let dry completely. Make brush-work patterns in Pure White.
    Step 8 Example
  10. Continue the same process as the other two pots to cover the pot in patterned line work.
    Step 9 Example
  11. Place them together to see if any changes or touch-ups need to be made. Think about all of the possibilities that these can be used for: Use as flower pots, utensil holders, storage containers, gift baskets, etc.
