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 desired colors into your disposable baking pans and tilt/swirl until you reach your desired pattern. Let sit until completely dry.
  2. Measure and cut one of the paint skins to the size of your plant pot. Adhere the skin to your pot with Mod Podge. Tuck in the corners of your skin into the top and bottom of the pot- 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.
