I have had these pots for about 10 years and they are still in really good nick. They haven’t got any cracks in them and just need a little bit of a fresh look. We have also wanted to add some pots outside my studio to welcome our lovely customers when they come for a workshop or pick up some paint.

It’s mould making time!

Step 4 – Using a small brush, dust the inside of your mould with corn starch. This stops the clay from sticking you your moulds.

Step 5 –  Break off small bits of clay and push into your mould. Then using your spatula scrape off the excess clay and you get a nice smooth surface.

Step 6 –  Apply some wood glue to the back of your moulds making sure that you get the glue right to the edges of the mould. Use the wooden craft stick to smear the glue to the edges. Pop your mould on your pot where you would like them and then using painters tape, tape them into place. This will stop them from sliding down your pot. Let dry for 20 minutes.

Add your soil and some pretty flowers and you’re all done!
I recommend only using a watering can when watering to avoid over saturation of your plants and also sealing the inside of your pot, to help protect your moulds and paint.
Happy Painting!
