Dear Roberta (and anyone else who has done this),
The classroom teachers in my school often do this around Mother's Day, and
me for advice. I've had problems with this technique in the past due to the
moisture seeps through the terra cotta, and makes the acrylic paint bubble
Is there any way to prevent this. I thought perhaps if the acrylic designs
were not painted on
the whole pot, so water could evaporate in some places, the paint would stay
Am I on the right track, or are there other tricks?
