- Small terracotta pots
- Paint palette
- Water basin
Basecoat the pots inside and out with Beetle Black paint; let dry completely.
Pour Habanero paint onto a palette. Dip the round brush from the Basic Brush Set into the paint, generously loading the brush. Starting at the top edge of the rim of the pot, apply the paint and gently drag it downward with the tip of the brush. Continue around the rim making drips in varying lengths as shown.
Repeat process on additional pots. Allow to thoroughly dry before use.
