International Painted Plastic Flower Pots

The pot at the top is what the bottom two looked liked before acrylic paint made their acquaintance. :)  I shipped the two painted pots to a fellow blogger who loves cats, gardens and lives in England. Gotta say, I sweat bullets the entire time as I prayed nothing would happen to the pots in transit. They did arrive in England safe and sound and in one piece. WOW--I am international now! :)

Jo, you're not being cheeky at all! :) I apologize for the delay in response. The process is not difficult at all--I promise. For this, I used plastic flower pots.

They were pretty sturdy plastic pots too.Gave them a quick sand paper rub, then I sprayed a paint primer for plastic. You may not really need this step,yet I felt safer. Let that dry, and then PAINT. The colors I used were acrylic craft paint, with some maybe all in the metallic shades--especially the blue one. If I remember right, I painted the base coat, let it dry, then sponge painted on the rest. Once it dries, I sprayed with an acrylic sealer--and then you have it!! Good luck!
