I used inexpensive terracotta pots and Martha Stewart multi purpose craft paints.

Just pour the craft paint onto the bottom edge of the pots and let gravity do the rest!

The paint colors will settle into each other without mixing and will create pretty organic lines along the sides of the pots.

      I Might paint the pots first: in coordinating colors! 💙

      Wondering also if you have ever tried doing it w/the pots right-side up, so the paint runs down from the top? Would it work as well? 🤔

        I'm guessing most of the paint would just drip off since the top is wider than the bottom.

      Will any kind of multipurpose paint work? How long does it take for the paint to dry?

        Any brand of multi surface paint would work. Although I will add, multi surface paint seems to take slightly longer to dry, and this would be for indoor only; you would need to spray seal it for outside uses.

      Did you leave them natural or seal with anything after the pain dried?

      I did something similar with my school kids for mother’s day. They look amazing. Here is a picture of them still upside down and drying

      It will drip faster and better if you add water to the paint
