Crafty Idea: Spray Painted Clay Pot

I like clay posts, but I cannot say that I am a huge fan of their colour. I have had this little clay pot in my craft studio for a while now and I have finally gotten around to painting it. I have painted clay pots before, and I generally use a brush. I have been doing several projects lately using spray paint, so I decided to try the spray painted method.

Weather permitting; I prefer to work outside when doing a paint project. I set-up my workspace and before getting started, I wiped the pot clean. I then placed the pot on a wooden block to lift it off of my work surface. I applied several light coats of paint and waited for the paint to dry between coats. I also painted the inside of the pot for a more finished look. I did not use a primer coat, but it is something worth doing especially for larger projects.

I now have a much better looking container to hold some items in my studio. The ivory is a great colour match and the pot looks more finished. I left the pot a solid colour; however, I think next time I will like to try lightly sanding the edges to create a shabby chic look.

I hope that my little project, gives you some ideas for your own projects. Let me know what you think!
