I really like my little balcony with all the flower pots, but I was missing some color, so I decided to paint three clay planters.
If you do not have old houseplants you can buy simple pottery plants in nurseries.

Before we start, it is important that the pots to be clean, I recommend washing them and giving them some time to dry.
Only after they are dry do they begin to color.
# 1 flower pot
Paint the pot base with white color, apply the paint with the paintbrush and straighten after passing with the sponge on the paint with a slight pat to create such a lumpy appearance. Make one layer of white paint and let the pot dry for 12 hours.
Then take the sticky tape, cut about 4 cm long pieces and paste on the pot.
Take yellow acrylic paint and paint over the sticky tape, as we did with the white paint, apply the paint with a brush and then brush it with a sponge with a slight pat.
Take an old toothbrush, pencil, and red acrylic paint. Dip the toothbrush in color and transfer it to the pencil, the brush will squirt the color on the pot in a really delicate way.
Take a green acrylic paint, mix it with a drop of water, dip the paintbrush and gently squeeze the paint on the pot, this will make it an interesting color splash.
Let it dry a bit and peel the scrap tape.
Now leave the pot to dry for 12 hours and after that simply spray a matte spray on all sides. And let it dry finally
# 2 flower pot
Paint the pot base with white color, apply the paint to the pot with the paintbrush, pay attention to applying the same as a uniform appearance. Leave it to dry for about 12 hours.
Then take a light blue color and paint all sorts of small parts, just a few strokes of color and that is, leaving to dry.
And so on, layer after layer as you take a different color each time until the entire urn is full of color.
I recommend coloring from light to dark
After we are done and the pot has dried for 12 hours simply spray a transparent matte varnish on all sides. And let it dry finally
# 3 flower pot
Paint the pot base with light blue color, apply the paint to the jar with the paintbrush, pay attention to applying the same as a uniform appearance. Leave it to dry for about 12 hours.
Take the paper tape and paste on the pot to create striped shapes and paint the shapes in dark blue oval acrylic, after a few minutes of drying, remove the paper tape and allow the jar to dry again.
Once again take the mascape tape and this time paste around the top so that we can paint the top of the urn. Take a red acrylic paint and paint the entire top of the urn. Make 2 layers of red paint and remove the mascape.
Take a thin brush and a yellow color and draw a fine strip under the red part.
Taking a small bar and dipping it in a green color and just placing it on the pot in a random fashion, it creates delicate stripes.
After the pot has dried a bit, take a white acrylic paint mix with a drop of water and with a simple paintbrush sprinkle the paint on the pot. Leave the pot to dry for 12 hours and after the pot is sprayed, spray it with a matte transparent varnish and leave it aside for full drying
