Project Instructions

Step: 1

Start by masking off the rims of the pot, as this area will be left unsprayed. Lay down newspaper to protect the surrounding area.

Step: 2

Take the Chalkboard Black and spray over the unmasked area, leave for 15 minutes then apply a second coat.

Step: 3

Leave to dry thoroughly for at least 60 minutes. Whilst waiting take the pencil and practice writing the names of your herbs on a scrap piece of paper.

Step: 4

Once the Chalkboard paint is dry, write the names of the herbs on each pot using the chalk.

Step: 5

Note: Always follow usage instructions on the reverse of Valspar Spray Paint cans.


Why not experiment with some of your own designs or try using metal pails instead of Terracotta pots?
