DIY : Terrapot with patterns

Name:Terra pot with patterns

Introduction: In India,Tulsi or Basil is considered as the most sacred plant and also considered auspicious.So almost every house in India has Tulsi or Basil plant. The medicinal property of Tulsi also makes it an important reason to have it at home.

Here, in the USA when I first bought my Terra pot for my Tulsi plant, I was all excited cause it was my first Terra pot and that I was going to plant my first Tulsi plant. I always like to personalize my stuff. It can be the smallest like a book marker to something big like a painting, I like everything to be personalized. So when I first got the Terra pot it seemed kinda boring:), come on there is predominantly only one color and absolutely nothing exciting. So I thought I should add some color. But since it was for my auspicious Tulsi plant, I did not want that earthy brown color to be just gone, so I decided to go with white:). White represents purity, and it was an amazing contrast for the existing color.

So keeping the earthiness intact I made some beautiful patterns on the pot as a border, all along the pot and also the drew the sacred Ashtadala padma with white paint.

Step 1
Decide on the pattern before starting to paint. Clean the surface of the pot with a paper towel. Then start painting the pattern on to your pot with a small artist paint brush(number zero brush). I have some easy ones below for reference.

Step 2
Let it dry overnight.

Finally spray the clear acrylic to protect the pattern what you have painted.
