    • palette or plastic plate

    1. Clean the metal planter by wiping down with a wet cloth or sponge. Let dry thoroughly.
    2. Instruction #1
    3. Using a medium flat brush, paint the inside of each section of the planter with Flamingo, Waterfront, or Canary. Apply three coats to each, allowing to dry completely between coats.
    4. Instruction #2
    5. Mix each color with Cotton Ball to make a light color for the basecoat for each planter cup. Using the medium flat brush, apply three coats on the outside of each cup.
    6. Instruction #3
    7. When each basecoat is dry, using the small flat, round, and stencil brushes, add the designs. ( I did swirls, polka dots, and stripes. These are easy to do free-handed.)
    8. Instruction #4
    9. Apply two coats of Lavender Fields to the wooden handle and to the metal brace. Using the small brush, add touches of Cotton Ball highlights to each design.
    10. Instruction #5
    11. Using the medium flat brush, apply a thin coat of Gloss Decou-Page over the entire planter to protect the paint and design work. Let dry completely.
