This morning I was looking for a post that I had done to show someone…and I couldn’t find it. So I went back to my notes so I could post it. Thank goodness I had this post on another site, because it is a awesome craft, with great results.
It all started with a terracotta pot and some Rustoleum White Blossom Spray paint.
I let the pot dry completely. I then took a clean pail and filled halfway with warm water. When you’re finished with this project you will have some nail polish leftover stuck inside the pail. You can use nail polish remover to remove.
I am using 3 colors for this project.. I found these polishes at the Dollar Tree..Now you have to remember, I haven’t tried this before, and I was hoping I was doing it right. I shook the nail polishes really well before putting in the water. I emptied two small bottles of two different colors into the water, making swirl patterns. You can take a skewer or something and spread the paint around. But do not mix it.
I dipped the terracotta pot in all the way to the top. Now you can dip it to the rim, and decorate that instead of dipping….I went for the whole pot! Tip: It’s better if you wear gloves.
I lightly wiped off the wet beads with a paper towel. I let it dry completely, then sprayed with Rustoleum Clear Sealer. (It’s on sale on Amazon)
I love it! It goes so well with the patio makeover. If you are hesitant about this project, try it in a paper cup with water then pour just a bit to see if it floats. If it does, you’re good to go. I purchased the nail polish at the Dollar Tree….inexpensive…but bright colors!
