For best results, first wash the containers in water and wipe over with methylated spirits. Thorough cleaning is essential in order to remove any invisible protective film applied during manufacture.
First, draw the outlines of the motif before colouring them in. If you make a mistake, or you're not happy with your motif, simply wipe it off with a damp cloth or make corrections using a damp cotton bud. As long as the decoration hasn't been baked in the oven, it's still possible to make corrections at any time.
Once you’ve finished decorating, leave the pot to dry for 15 minutes. Now bake your painted items for 25 minutes in a preheated oven at 160°C. Place the flowerpots on a cold oven shelf before sliding them into the oven. Leave in the oven to cool afterwards. After baking, the decoration will be dishwasher-proof.
You can decorate your other plant containers in the same way. That's all you need to do if you want to give your green roommates a fresh new look!
