I'm getting creative again and so I decided to buy some acrylic paints and brushes because I never have the right paintbrushes. I have a lot of terracotta plant pots which I have acquired and thought that I would spruce them up with a little decoration.
I am still experimenting with how to paint them as the pots are very porous so the right paint has to be used or the designs won't last. I have been following some videos on You Tube, like ya do and I hope I will come up with something nice.
So acrylic paints are the best paints to use for my pots and I saw this little collection on Amazon. It has a lovely selection of colours and they are so easy to use. Having proper brushes really helps too. You may have acrylics already if you have been painting stones so you will already know how good they work. Up to now I have just used the acrylic pens for the stones and may still use them here for this project but the paint is good for larger surfaces.
I like the raw look of a hand painted plant pot, there is something about it, a rustic feel and they can look so colourful on a patio or in the house. I am going to paint the pots and then get some nice plants in them to sell in the shop.
The box comes with 18x 59ml paint pots for £22.97 and the brushes came in packet of 12 for £12.99 so I'm all set up. You don't have to use very much paint at all so don't be put off by the small bottles. I have made the mistake already of pouring far too much out so only use a small amount at first, you always keeping adding more as you go.
Well I'll keep you posted with how I go and what I manage to create. For now though you take care and join me again tomorrow for my Verse for Thursday.
What to Buy Wednesday
From January 2018 I've decided to shake Wednesdays up and review products that I have purchased so we go from random thoughts to important retail therapy for the new year.
