    • water container
    • palette or plastic plate
    • paper towels
    • rubbing alcohol
    • 1" painter's tape
    • cosmetic sponges
    • glazed ceramic pot



    Let dry completely between painting steps.

    1. Clean the pots with rubbing alcohol and paper towels.
    2. Place the octopus from the Americana Reusable Stick-on Sea Life Stencil as a mask to the center of a pot.
    3. Tear two long pieces of painter's tape to make a border wider than the octopus. (See photo.)
    4. Load a cosmetic sponge with Bright Orange for the first pot. Pounce inside the border. Immediately remove the octopus mask. Rinse mask.
    5. Repeat the process on the other two pots using Calypso Blue and Festive Green. Use separate cosmetic sponges for each color.
    6. Follow the baking instructions on the Americana Gloss label to make the pots even more durable.
