INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Paint the interior, outer rim, and drips coming down from the outer rim of the clay pots in Lemon Yellow.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Create an ombre effect on each pot by blending Watermelon Slice into Tangerine on one; Lemon Yellow into Hauser Light Green on one; and Sapphire into Lavender on the third.. (Be mindful of how the piece will be hung when painting so the colors flow in the correct order of the rainbow.)
    Step 1 Example
  3. Using a fan brush and a small, fine brush, paint the entire interior, outer rim, and drips in Gold Shooting Star.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Cut three long strands of jute/hemp cord and braid them together; tape the ends together and trim, leave the tape on for assembly. Tie a loop at the top of the strand for hanging.
    Step 3 Example
  5. String the jute through the pots, tying a knot underneath each and spacing them far apart from each other as you go. Once finished, remove the tape and cut each strand at a different length for aesthetic interest.
