30 Minutes
Plain terra cotta pots are given a sleek and modern make over with matte paint and liquid gold leafing. Fast drying and inexpensive!
Using matte paint helps make the gold leafing pop all the more!
Terra cotta is given a modern feel with geometric designs.
Succulents of varying shapes give a visual contrast to the otherwise geometric feel.
Liquid leafing applied freehand with a brush gives a glamorous look.
