Dripped Watercolor Terracotta Pot Tutorial
I love watercolors so much that I had to use some on a terracotta flower pot for my deck. Ok, it's not actual watercolor paints........... just watered down acrylics, but the effect is the same. Here's how it's made:
- Terracotta Pot
- White Paint for your base- you can use acrylic, latex wall paint or even spray paint.
- Several tubes of acrylic paint in the colors of your choice- use these for the watercolor dripping
- Paint brush, palette, and water
- Spray sealer (optional) Krylon Clear Acrylic Coating Spray works well
Step 2: On your palette, mix some acrylic paint with water. Water it down really well so that it will drip. Then with the pot upside down, drip paint with your brush. Just apply it to the top and let it run. If the paint doesn't run when you put it on, just add a little water to in on the pot and it will go!
Step 3: Add more colors on top of the first, letting the drips run where they may. I stuck with just three colors here. They tend to mix as you apply them, so I wouldn't do more than four.
All that's left is to fill your artwork with some pretty flowers and enjoy!
