Step-by-Step Instructions

Preparation

Create a raised, covered space to place your surface once you've poured your paint, such as thumbtacks in cardboard or a baker's rack.

Pouring Technique

  1. Pour your pouring paint mixtures into a disposable baking pan and tilt/swirl until you reach your desired pattern. Let this sit until totally dry.
  2. Remove the paint skin from the pan and measure and cut to the size of the plant pot.
  3. Wrap the skin around your garden pot and adhere with Mod Podge. Tuck in the corners of your skin into the top and bottom of the plant holder- adhere with Mod Podge if needed.

Drying and Finishing

Place your painted project on the raised surface and allow to dry and cure for 24-48 hours for optimal results.
