My second terra cotta planter started off much the same as the first one, although I knew I was going in a bolder patterned direction with this one.
Two coats of paint, with dry time in between. I again, used washi tape (but recommend you use blue painters tape or frog tape) to tape off a geometric pattern so I could begin painting. The green base color is Deco Art's 'Fern Green' patio paint.
Each colored triangle took 2-3 coats (depending on the paint color) to fully cover up the original green paint color. I went with blue (Deco Art's Blue Bahama), green (Deco Arts Citrus Green), and silver since that best matched my other planters in the herb garden. I liked the silver stripe around the rim so much from the chalkboard labeled pot that I repeated the effect on this one. Pretty, pretty!
In keeping with the kitchen garden theme, this planter is home to some oregano that's already going wild and crazy. I need to give it a bit of a haircut to tame things down a bit, don't you think? Can you see how much the mint has grown in just a short week-wow!
Deco Art sent me a bloggers box of craft supplies at no charge to me in exchange for my crafting with the supplies and sharing a project with all of you. I was not paid to write a positive review so please know all opinions are my own.
