• Whimsie Pot Process:

I've been painting Whimsie Flower Pots since 1999 and have found, through trail and error, how to seal and prime terra cotta 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. I have a 12 year old Whimsie Pot that's just as striking as it was when I first created it to prove it!

Before a plain terra cotta pot is transformed into a Whimsie Pot, 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 the pots with polyurethane. I take these steps because terra cotta pots are permeable and not stain resistant and I want you to enjoy your pots 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.

• Whimsie Pot Uses:

Host or Housewarming gifts
Shower/Wedding favors or center pieces (bulk order prices available)
Gift filled with soaps/scents
Baby shower gifts filled with onesies, powder, etc.
Striking center pieces or mantel decor filled with pine cones or other gifts of nature
Caddy to hold your buffet silverware, office pens/pencils, candy, vanity cotton swabs/balls
Lollipop tree - Look what one of my customers did!! http://www.etsy.com/transaction/78060242
Porch/patio plants!
