Use a paintbrush to swirl the colors around in the white paint to create different designs. Do not mix too thoroughly, or the colors will begin to become muddled. You want a beautiful swirl.

Hold the inside and bottom of a terra cotta pot, and lightly roll it on the surface of the paint in the plastic bin. You do not want to push the pot down into the paint, but instead, barely skim it over the surface, rolling it as you go. This will transfer the pretty marbled pattern onto the outside of the pot. You can check out the video to see how we made ours.

How to Make Marbled Pots

Materials:

  • Terra Cotta Pots
  • White acrylic paint
  • Acrylic paints in your choice of other colors
  • Paintbrush
  • Small plastic tub
  • Water
  • Plastic cups (optional)
  • Potting soil
  • Plants or succulents of your choosing

Instructions:

  1. Place a layer of white acrylic paint in the bottom of a small plastic tub.
  2. Add water to the paint. Use ¼ as much water as you did paint when filling the tub. This will create a ration of about 1 part water to every 4 parts of paint.
  3. Use a popsicle stick or paintbrush to thoroughly mix the water into the white paint until it is smooth.
  4. Place a small amount of water into the bottom of some plastic cups.
  5. Add acrylic paint in your choice of colors to the cups with the water. Use one color of paint per cup. Stir the paint and water together well until combined completely.
  6. Dip a paintbrush into the watered down colored paint, and dab drops of the colored paint all over the surface of the watered down white paint in the plastic tub. Repeat this process with all of the different colored paints.
  7. Use a paintbrush to swirl the colors around in the white paint to create different designs. Do not mix too thoroughly, or the colors will begin to become muddled.
  8. Hold the inside and bottom of a terra cotta pot, and lightly roll it on the surface of the paint in the plastic bin. You do not want to push the pot down into the paint, but instead, barely skim it over the surface, rolling it as you go. This will transfer the pretty marbled pattern onto the outside of the pot.
  9. Place the dipped pots upside down on a protected surface to dry. Flip them over when the bottom is dry, and touch up any spots around the rim of the pots.
  10. Fit the pots with potting soil, and plants or succulents of your choosing.
