Product Note
Patio Paint is a self-sealing exterior paint. No prior preparation is needed when working on wood. For other surfaces, follow directions on label. Patio Paints may be used on all porous surfaces such as concrete, terra cotta, wood, plaster, etc. Because of the self-sealing agents, they do not require a varnish upon completion.

Transferring Patterns
Lay tracing paper over pattern and draw the basic lines. Lay this tracing on the surface to be painted. Slip graphite paper between the tracing and the surface. Tape to secure. Trace with a pencil to transfer the design. Do not trace details until after basecoating has dried.

Instructions
Using sponge, basecoat all pots with white.

Stack 2" pots on top of each other, and 1-1/2" pots same way; glue together. Turn 4" pot upside down and glue 2" stack to base.

Using transfer materials, place face details in lower of each pair of pots.

Use sponge to put two Red Pepper circles on white rim of 2" pot. Using liner, paint face details with black.
