I went to my local art supply store Dots 'N Doodles where the owners are always very helpful and discussed possible paints for terracotta pots. I was immediately drawn to the cool glossy colors of the Montana brand spray paint cans and settled on trying out the green. To get started on my project, I first covered the portion of the pot I was not painting with newspaper and used masking tape to hold it in place.
While I let the pot tray dry I turned to the actual pot and sprayed all the way around the lip of the pot making sure to let the paint settle in for fifteen to thirty seconds before applying an additional layer.
After I was finished, I set the pot in the upright position to let it dry. After 15 minutes I went back to the pot tray and flipped it over and sprayed the other side.
We went from this plain clay colored pot on the left to this vibrant green pot on the right.
