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 Bright Pink and Orange 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 flower pot.
  3. Wrap the skin around your flower pot and adhere with Mod Podge.

Drying and Finishing

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