Marbling Flower Pots With Spray Paint


I was looking for a way to give an updated look to my terra cotta flower pots that would be easy and cheap. You will need: Flower pots, 3 colors of spray paint and white paint, shallow tub, gloves, and a stick or two. Here is how the project turned out.
First-paint pot white.
Second, fill shallow plastic tub halfway with water then spray your first color in water.
Third, spray the next color into the first color.
Keep spraying different colors until the surface of the water is mostly covered with paint.
Next, roll the pot (with a stick inserted to hold it) on the surface of the water. Make it a continuous roll if possible. Use another stick or your finger to roll it.
When it is completely covered lift it out then hang it up to dry (I use the stick for this).
Here it is drying:-)
It is really easy to do-visit my blog for instructions.
Happy planting!

    Can that be done to a wall?

      Maybe wet a paint roller and apply the paint in different swirls and roll it on. I guess you would have to rinse the roller each time.

    Could you do this on a large glass piece like a flower vase or tall bottle?

    Is it a safe assumption that the spray paint would have to be a non water-based type so as not to become diluted by the water in the pan?
