Hi Friends. I made an amazing recycle idea in tis video. I made a clay pot with plastic yoghurt container. I made a recycle idea with plastic containers.

.

.

.

Materials:

​Plastic yoghurt container

brush

carbonate

acrilic colors

.

.

.

Drill a few holes in the bottom of the plastic container. For this, I heated a nail and drilled a few holes under the plastic container. Do not hold the nail with your hand, it can burn your hand when it gets hot.

.

.

.

Pour white acrylic paint into a bowl. I poured about 3 tablespoons of white paint to paint the 1.5 kg yoghurt container. I added some acrylic paint (terracotta colour) and mixed it. Add and mix colored paint little by little to get the color you want. When it was the color I wanted, I added 1 pack (40 gr) of carbonate. Do not add all the carbonate at once. The liquidity rate may vary depending on the brand of paint you use. I added carbonate and mixed well. And my painting material is ready.

.

.

.

I brushed the paint mixture on the yoghurt container. I evenly applied the paint all over the whole container.

.

.

.

While applying the paint mixture, you can also make different patterns with your brush. If you move the brush like a zigzag, you create a wave-like floor.

.

.

.

Clay pot is ready. You can let it dry and apply spray varnish. You need to apply matte varnish so that the clay appearance does not change.

.

.

.

This has been a really great recycling. I love the recycling project. Love nature and protect it.

    LOVE IT! Looks so real. Great recycling! Could you also use sand to add texture? Maybe glue a few small sticks around top or bottom, even some roping to further hide the edges. Think I have a project when I finish my yogurt.

      Wow, this is amazing idea 😍 The grains of sand are not as small as the carbonate grains, so I don't know if they look that way. But maybe some liquid glue can also be added while adding sand.

    Why do you put carbonate in the paint? What purpose does it serve?

      Absolutely. Carbonate creates a clay texture. It will have a texture like clay pots instead of plain paint.

      Actually, I don't know the type, I used baking soda that can be used for food. 😊
