Get your supplies!

You will need:

  • Micador For Artists PermaPainters - Black

  • Plant Pot

  • Graphite Pencil

Step 1: Sketch!

Using a graphite pencil, sketch the basic outline of the leaf pattern. Space the leaves around the pot evenly. 

Step 2: Trace!

Trace the outline using a black PermaPainter. To add detail trace in smaller branches and leaves.

Step 3: Alternate!

Create an alternating pattern, so each branch faces the opposite direction of the one beside it. Repeat this process until the pot is covered.

Step 4: Complete!

Now your pot is complete please note, depending on the material of your chosen pot, the PermaPainter ink may scratch off and/or deteriorate over time. To test its resistance, add a small amount of ink to the inside of your pt and allow it to dry. Rub the area to see if it will hold.
