DIY Paint Drip Planter Pot

 Did you melt colourful crayons over a candle flame and drip it onto pots, candles, jars and bottles as a child?

Well, this 'Paint Drip Planter Pot' is reminiscent of that, except we are using acrylic liquid paints for the project.

The visual outcome is similar without the 3D crayon texture. 

It has a flat colourful surface.


 You Will Need:

Protective gloves

An apron or old clothes.

A plastic pot that has a matt texture (not shiny) in whatever size you choose

Golden Liquid Acrylic Paint

Bottled Golden Liquid acrylic paints in your choice of colours

A tarpaulin

Spray sealer in clear gloss

A plant to place in your completed pot

To Make:

Set up your work area with the tarpaulin to protect the ground or tabletop.

Put on your gloves and apron.

(You'll need them as this is a very messy paint project).

Begin running one colour of the paint in drips and patterns on the pot.

I used the nib on the paint bottle to move the paint around.

I left small areas of the matt black pot showing through the paint.

You can blow onto the paint gently to move it around if you wish.

Keep adding layers of different coloured paint, turning as you go by carefully holding the pot rim.

(HINT: This is the point where I thought 'Darn should have had a drip tray or moveable plastic sheet under the drips so I could have also created a paint drip mini canvas with the leftover paint!')

When you are happy with the effect, set aside to dry overnight.

The next day, spray with two coats, allowing dry time in between as per paint can instructions.

Place your plant inside the pot.

And put it in your garden or on your deck or patio.

(I eventually put mine inside on the office window sill so I would enjoy it while I was working).
