It's just a terra cotta urn shape, with an egg and dart motif around the mouth and some simple fluting underneath, I always like this shape...
After a good coat (2) of primer, it was ready to go! I painted it white and it was better already...
#3 Paint white
Next, I used some watered down acrylic paint to age the pot. I love how aging looks in the detail...I used the paint-on/wipe-off method...I really have no good dish towels left! :)
#4 Age The egg and dart looks great and really stands out now!
This process took no time at all...I let it cure overnight and the next day I sealed it with a coat of poly.
#6 Seal #7 Finished project
Using seashells and angel root, I put together just something simple....and easily changed
(See my bottles I got @ Nell Hill's?:)
I hope you have enjoyed my mini Met! I hope your inspired to look at poor ugly pots in a different way !
Thanks again Susan for hosting!
