Prime the pots and decorative balls as specified by the paint manufacturer's instructions and leave to dry.
We've provided a template suggestion at the end of these instructions showing decorative patterns and lettering. With the aid of the carbon paper and a pencil, you can transfer the pattern to the clay pots and decorative balls, or simply make up your own designs. Tip: Look in poetry books or on the internet to find great quotes about spring.
Finally, fill in the pattern or lettering with the edding 4000 matt paint marker. Or, if you prefer, select the edding 4040 matt paint marker with the thinner nib.
