Create and Decorate: Decorated Plastic Pot with Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan


Create and Decorate. Decorated Plastic Pot with Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan

I learned that Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan can be used on plastic as long as it is not shiny.
Floral flower pots are very trendy this Spring. I could not resist adding a retro vibe to this white matte plastic pot I had in my stash with simple hand drawn flowers and leaves. 

MATERIALS:

  • Plastic pot (mine is white, even a better canvas!)
  • Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan (Barcelona Orange, Henrietta, Old White, English Yellow and Antibes Green)
  • Pencil
  • Permanent Marker
  • Medium to small sponge or brush
  • Small round and flat brushes

INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. Clean your plastic pot with a cloth to get rid off any dust.
  2. Using a brush or sponge paint the bottom exterior part of your pot with
    Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan in English Yellow.
     
  3. Let it dry completely.
  4. Repeat step 2 and apply a second coat of paint.
  5. Using a pencil hand draw your retro flowers and leaves around the exterior of your pot. 
  6. Using a small round brush start filling up your pencil hand drawn retro flowers with Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan in Barcelona Orange.
  7. Start adding layers to form your retro flowers with Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan in Henrietta and Old White.
  8. Let it dry completely.  
  9. Using a small round brush paint the pistil of your retro flowers with Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan in Antibes Green.
  10. Let it dry completely.  
  11. Using a small round brush paint your retro leaves with Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan in Antibes Green. Add some detail lines to them with Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan in Old White.
  12. Let it dry completely.
  13. Using a permanent black marker add depth and dimension to your retro flower motif.
  14. Let dry completely.
