I painted some flower pots a couple of years ago as gifts, and so far so
good--they're doing fine.
While I'd read one thing that said NOT to paint the inside of flower pots, I
knew the moisture would eventually damage the paint. So I used white (or
black) interior latex paint as a "primer" and then painted the designs on
with regular acrylic paint.
Don't use any type of enamel or oil-based paint though--someone told me that
it would kill the plant.
I did a local scene on one of the pots (interesting, trying to get it to
come out in a round design!) and then I painted a still life with apples on
the other one.
Featuring art and art lesson plans, examples of my
artwork, genealogy resources, information about
contra dancing and Celtic music--and more!
