Boho inspired DIY planters

 It was a few years back I found my love for Air dry clay projects. They are so much fun!!  You should give it a try. I am currently running out of pots and thought it might be a good idea to create a few cute little planters.

Supply List:

  • Plastic containers/Bottles/Take away containers
  • Air-dry clay ( I use mould it from Fevicryl)
  • Sculting tools(optional)
  • Paint (Acrylic or enamel)
  • Varnish
  • Paint Brush
  • And of course few succulents and soil

Color Mixing:

Color mixing is the crucial and fun part here. I have used acrylic paints from Fevicryl. You can use any company acrylic paint here.

Mix a small amount of Orange and Burnt sienna into crimson. There is no right and wrong proportion here. Mixing different quantities will give you different variants of terracotta color. Add white with the mixed product to lighten the shades of the terracotta color.

Here I have used different combinations of the above-mentioned four colors to get beautiful shades of terracotta.

Adding Terracotta texture to Your planter

To create a rough surface, add a bit of baking powder into the paint, Mix it well and apply it onto the planter to create a natural terracotta feel on your planter.

This step is completely optional. You can totally avoid this step and proceed further.

The more baking powder you add to the paint, the thicker the texture becomes.
