Tired of those orange clay pots? Buy some acrylic paints and give them some color. Add a plant, and you can use them in-doors or out, plus have the enjoyment of a hobby. I did not take classes, just start experimenting, its fun and creative.

Wow. Looks great!
You must be a natural born artist. I know mine would never look like that, but it would be fun to try. ;)
Very professional! You are a natural!
Beautiful painting, I have a question: How does, or does, the paint affect when you water the plants, does it cut down because the paint keeps moisture in?
Beautiful pots. You have a wonderful talent. God bless your hands. Thanking you for sharing
Wow! You're quite talented! I'll give your idea a try but mine will be simple doodles ;-)

Some old and a couple new Terra Cotta pots. One day I didn't have much to do so, for a craft and make my pots look good, I put on some paint to dress up my outdoor plants and, since then, moved them to my porch ledge. It was a fun idea and Terra Cotta pots are cheap. I used outdoor craft paint, and 2 coats of outdoor craft varnish.
How lovely! I'm in the midst of trying to get things organized for planting in the next week to 10 days, but the weather in MI isn't cooperating. The pots would look nice on your kitchen window sill, too, for growing herbs in winter. Thanks for sharing, Terry. (05/15/2009)
