Terracotta Pot Painting

 Hai friends today I am coming with Painting.  I did painting on terracotta pots.

This I did upcycle to old pots.

For terracotta pots first we have to paint white and then we can paint what ever colour we want.

 I traced few designs directly on the pot. You can trace with help of  carbon paper.

After it gets dry seal it with varnish.

So that it protects from sun and rain.

Please check the video for detail process.
