    3. With Pure White, paint a basecoat around the bottom part of each pot, leaving the rims unpainted.
    4. Instruction #2
    5. With various paintbrushes, create patterns around the pots in bands. (Here I used Classic Black loaded on a small flat brush to make vertical lines.)

    7. Moving on up the pot, create the next band by making a diamond design with a dot of paint in the middle with the handle end of the paintbrush dipped in Classic Black.

    9. For the next pot, paint Classic Black lines with a small round brush, varying the line direction.

    20. Instruction #10
    21. Place them together to see if any changes or touch-ups need to be made. Think about all of the possibilities that these can be used for: Use as flower pots, utensil holders, storage containers, gift baskets, etc.
