Project Instructions

Step 1 Keep your doilies layered when removing from the package. Carefully lift three doilies and keep them aligned by clipping with clothespin or paper clip.

Step 2 Working half of the doily at a time, use cardboard squeegee to apply a thin layer of Aleene's® Original Tacky Glue™ between doily layers.

Step 3 While glue is still wet, cut doilies in half.

Step 4 Use cardboard squeegee to apply a thin layer of glue to back of doilies.

Step 5 Glue in place on clay pot. Repeat to apply as many doilies as desired, cutting into different sizes to fit the shape and size of your clay pot. Let glue dry completely.

Step 6 Brush entire clay pot with black acrylic paint. Let dry.

Step 7 Pick up first color of acrylic paint with brush and brush it lightly on paper towel. Then, following the design of the doily on the clay pot, dry brush paint colors where desired.

Step 8 With this dry brush technique, you should still see some of the black paint showing from behind. Continue to paint entire clay pot with this dry brush technique. Spray seal with Aleene's® Spray Gloss Sealer.

Step 9 Decorate pot with desired embellishments.
