HOW TO PAINT POUR ACRYLIC PAINT ON A CLAY POT
1. SELECT SEVERAL FOLKART MARBLING PAINT COLORS FOR YOUR POUR.
It’s best if you have 4 or more colors. I choose 5 paint colors one of them being white. It’s good to always have white in the mix.
2. SET YOUR PAINT POUR PROJECT ON A CAN, PLASTIC PAINT PYRAMID, OR SOMETHING SIMILAR, TO LIFT IT OFF OF THE TABLE SURFACE.
The paints will need to drain off of the project and not pool around it. I turned the terra cotta pot upside down and set it over two stacked pint size paint cans.
3. POUR THE PAINTS ONE BY ONE INTO A PLASTIC OR PAPER CUP.
Swirl them a little or use a popsicle stick ( or something similar) and stir just slightly. I didn’t really stir my paint I used the popsicle stick and basically just drew an x through the paints.
4. POUR THE PAINT OVER YOUR PROJECT.
I didn’t mix up enough paint the first time and had to do a second cup. Keep that in mind for your project. I just went around the pot pouring the paint.
5. LET THE PAINT DRY FOR 24 TO 48 HOURS THEN SEAL.
Use FolkArt Acrylic Lacquers (Matte, Satin, or Gloss Finishes) or with FolkArt Artists’ Varnish (Satin or Gloss). I sealed my marbled pot with one coat each of Mod Podge Outdoor and Mod Podge Gloss.
