  1. Cover work surface and wipe down any dirty or dusty areas of pot.
  2. Apply a coat of Primitive to the lower half of flower pot.
  3. Apply a coat of Everlasting paint on top of the first color layer. Use a light hand or dry brush when applying the layer of color. Allow the first paint color to show through. Cover the entire outside of the pot.
  4. Apply a layer of Primitive over the top outer half of the pot, covering Everlasting. Allow the Primitive color to completely cover the white.
  5. Paint the inside of the pot with Primitive. Using a dry brush, add Everlasting to the inside top of the pot, allowing Primitive to show through.
  6. Add a third layer of paint in Everlasting, to the top outer section of the pot. Do not coat too thick so some of the Primitive color shows through. Using a craft blade, scrape away the paint in the grooves around the center of the pot. Add Primitive to striped area.
  7. Finish the piece with Ultra Matte Varnish to seal your flower pot.
