This 8-inch "Zebra" Whimsie Pot can give a lot of panache to your holiday entertaining as a centerpiece, silverware caddy or candy dish! The pot and saucer are painted inside, out and under! The background is a pearl white covered with a midnight black zebra print while the trim and interior of the pot is a bold lipstick red! The saucer bottom is midnight and trimmed with the same lipstick red! Pow!!!


I've been painting Whimsie Pots since 1999 and have found, through trail and error, how to seal and prime terra cotta pots to avoid staining and bubbling paint. I learned the hard way back then that varnish or outdoor paints alone don't suffice! I now use a fool proof method and have a 12 year old Whimsie Pot that's just as striking as it was when I first created it!

Before a plain garden flower pot or coaster is transformed into a Whimsie, they are dipped in a commercial grade, water-based, waterproofing agent. After a 24 hour curing time, I cover them with a water-based, mildew-resistant stain blocker. Once dry, I apply a coat of primer. After painting the Whimsie design, I cover them with polyurethane. I take these steps because terra cotta is permeable and not stain resistant and I want you to enjoy your Whimsie Pots/Coasters for a long, long time! I keep a large inventory so I can process large orders for special occasions like weddings/showers with a quick turnaround.
