Geometric Terra-Cotta Pot How-To

Martha Stewart Weddings, Summer 2011

Tools and Supplies

  • Terra cotta pot with saucer (we used MGMY "Geo" planters,
  • Masking tape
  • Acrylic paint in peach and cream
  • Foam brushes

Basic How-To

Determine which section of the terra cotta pot you would like to paint; we painted some peach and some cream. Apply masking tape to outline the area, pressing it firmly at the edges. Dip a foam brush in the paint, and smoothly stroke a thin layer onto the pot. Let dry, about 20 minutes, and repeat. Remove masking tape as soon as second layer dries.
