Create and Decorate: Updated Retro Terracotta Pot with Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan


Create and Decorate. Updated Retro Terracotta Pot with Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan.
Since I found another pot I couldn't resist decorating it as well with a retro style motif.

UPDATED TERRACOTTA POT WITH RETRO FLORAL MOTIF 

MATERIALS:
  • Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan (Antilbes Green, Barcelona Orange, Giverny and Old White)
  • Medium to small brushes (also sponges if you prefer to paint the pot and saucer)
  • Pencil
  • Black permanent marker 
TIP: Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan requires no priming or sanding. Isn't that awesome?
I really liked its velvety matte finish. This paint is odour free and extremely low in volatile organic compounds. 

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Using a small brush paint the inside of your terracotta pot with the Old White Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan.
  2. Let it dry completely.
  3. Then apply a second coat of paint.   
  4.  Using a small brush paint the outside of your terracotta pot with the Antilbes Green Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan.
  5. Let it dry completely.
  6. Then apply a second coat of paint.  
  7. Decide where you want to place your retro flower motif. Mine are all around the pot.
  8. Using a pencil hand draw your retro flower motif on you terracotta pot.
  9. Using a small brushes paint your retro flower motif on the outside of your terracotta pot. The image above is intended as a reference. You can interchange the colours used on the retro flower motif : Antilbes Green, Barcelona Orange, Giverny and Old White.  
  10. Adding a second coat of paint to your retro flower motif is optional.
  11. Let dry completely.
  12. Using a permanent black marker add depth and dimension to your retro flower motif.
  13. Let dry completely.
  14. Wash all your brushes with warm water.
TIP: Place your plant in a plastic pot and then inside your terracotta pot. Your plant will not get as dry and your terracotta pot will last a lot longer.
