  1. Choose some mini flower pots. I chose some that already had little fake plants. I wanted to liven up the pot's plain surfaces.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Cover pouring area with a protective surface. A great method is getting a plastic tub and some grates. (TIP: This set up can be used repeatedly and when the paint dries, you can peel up the paint pour skin to cut up and use for other projects!)
    Step 1 Example
  3. If using a mini faux plant, just mask off where you don't want the paint to go before pouring.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Using a tiny disposable cup (or cut up plastic egg crate cup), pour each Dazzling Metallics Paint color:Teal, Shimmering Silver, Amethyst and Crystal Green into a separate cup. (TIP: Depending on the size of your pouring surface adjust the amount of paint to use to cover it.) Add Pouring Medium on top of paint colors in a 1:1 ratio. Mix each color cups with a clean craft stick.
    Step 3 Example
  5. In a clean cup, pour in layers of the previously mixed colors. Layer paints in the cup in this order: Amethyst, Teal, Crystal Green and then Shimmering Silver.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Pour layered paint cup onto the surface of the cup. Move around until the surface is covered and you reach the desired look. Set on grate to drip dry. (TIP: Lift and scrape bottom and move to a clean spot on the grate BEFORE it is completely dry.)
    Step 5 Example
  7. Optional: With a palette knife, apply Americana Decor Texture-Plum to the bottom portion of the pots to add even more visual interest! (TIP: Let dry upside down.)
    Step 6 Example
  8. Mixing the pouring medium with metallic paints is a great way to update any surface with some shimmering swirl!
