Halloween is just around the corner.
Ready to get your spook on?
perhaps some of your potted succulents need a little
Start off with a terra cotta pot.
Mold Creative Paperclay ® around your pot.
If your molding material stretches too much, cut a line and fold the clay over
to fit it around your pot.
I decided to keep a mottled texture on my base.
Since I will be using this for succulents,
I made sure the bottom was clear of Creative Paperclay ®, especially
around the drainage hole. This will also help your pot sit level.
Decorate your pot...using "snakes!"
Score and add slip to secure each added piece.
Cookie Cutters make great circles!
Create paper template for the wings.
Flip the template over to cut the second wing so
they will be symmetrical!
Let it dry.
I like to use Mod Podge to seal before I paint with acrylic paints!
Inside and out...since terracotta is porous!
Then ... use acrylic paints to color your creations.
Lastly, plant your succulent in its new home!
