Project Instructions

Prepare palette or paper plate with quarter-sized drops of all colors. Replenish when needed.

Paint insides of all pots: one, Pumpkin; one, Petunia Purple; one, Citrus Green. Using #10 flat brush, start from bottom of inside and use long brush strokes to top of rim. (Full coverage will require more than one coat of paint.)

Use same flat brush and paint outsides of pots Wrought Iron Black. Let dry and carefully paint tops of rims.

With liner brush and Citrus Green, paint "trick or treat" on rim of pot with Citrus Green inside. Freehand letters and then add little dots to each letter end with opposite side of brush.

For bottom of "trick or treat" pot, swirl randomly with Pumpkin and add scattered dots of Petunia Purple in between using back end of #1 flat brush.

Tips

Because Patio Paint is an enamel and has a shiny finish, you must let paint dry completely after each step before applying another color.
