- To weather a pot, combine 1 part powdered milk paint (available at crafts stores) with 1 part water. Apply to pot with a paintbrush. Let dry 1 hour.
- Combine 1 part lime powder (find it at garden centers) with 2 parts water; brush on over paint. Let dry 1 hour.
- Working in a well-ventilated area, sand pot with medium-grit sandpaper until desired look is achieved.
- Gather shells that are uniform in size and appearance (or purchase them at crafts stores or online). Affix shells to rim of pot with tacky glue; employ tweezers to adhere the smaller shells.
