Milk Paint Terra-Cotta Pots
Source: The Martha Stewart Show, March 2011
- With a sieve, sift 1/2 cup of milk paint powder into 1/2 cup of water while stirring with a craft stick until all powder is incorporated.
- Using a foam brush, apply milk paint to terra-cotta pot using vertical strokes. Let dry completely.
- Braid cotton rope as desired and with hot glue, attach to pot just below rim.
- Once hot glue has cooled, apply a second coat of milk paint to pot, being sure to completely saturate braided rope with paint.
- Once paint is dry, use a fine-grit sanding pad to sand pot until smooth.
- To weatherproof for outdoor use, seal pot with clear matte finishing spray.
