- Terrecotta Pot: (Be sure to choose a pot with a drainage hole. Painting the pots will seal the pourers that help drain water in the first place)
- Paint Brushes: (I used a variety that I had on hand. Inexpensive, throwaway chippy brushes work perfectly for this project)
- Paint of Choice in 3 colors: (I have tried this with leftover acrylic, chalk type and latex paints that I have already on hand and all seem to work well.)
- Sealant: (I love this spray sealant but Polycrylic that you can brush on will work fine too)
- Drop Cloth or Old Towel
Paint tends to dry quickly on Terre-cotta so having everything out and ready is key to success with this particular technique since
Place towel or drop cloth in your work area. Lay out the paint you will use and choose one paint brush for each color. Then choose two other paint brushes to use as your “blending” brushed. Lay them in between your single color brushes.
