Jazz up your flowerpots

Give your plants a fresh new look

Spring is the perfect time to give your houseplants some extra TLC. Re-potting, removing dead growth and trimming back are just some of the jobs that might need doing. It's a great opportunity to completely rearrange your plants and revamp the pots at the same time! edding porcelain brush pens allow you to paint on white porcelain or ovenproof ceramic to your heart's content: big and bold, small and detailed, words or phrases - just whatever you fancy! In our example, we opted for subtle black for our greeting. Once you've finished painting, bake your pot in the oven to make your design permanent. Prior to baking, you can make corrections at any time with a little water and a damp cloth – you can even wash off the entire design and start again.
