I begin by painting the whole pot in dark green acrylic paint .
Gorgeous Green Plantpot Makeover
Here's a great project idea! Rather than buy new planters to get a fresh new look in the house for spring, I decided to try and revamp some old dull ones with acrylic paint and some new paint pens. This brown earthy stoneware one is a good strong pot and nice big size that looked like it was screaming out for a bit of colour and new design!
I let the two coats of green dry then use an acrylic paint pen in black to draw my flower designs on surface. The paint pens are super nice to work with and glide easily over the surface.
I fill in with some bright yellow outlines now to give bright contrast.
I keep adding highlights and a few dots here and there till I feel happy I’ve got the look I desire.
I leave to dry.
wow what a transformation and ready now for this gorgeous green Yucca plant to live in!
I hope you like it as much as I do!
