How to Paint a Realistic Flower Pot

Welcome to another installment of ASK PLAIDIE LADDIE!

Plaidie Laddie, loyal Plaid pooch and one of our blog contributors, wants to answer your most burning painting questions. Every week he’ll pick a question out of his virtual mailbag and answer it (with a little help from me, since he only has paws). This week’s question:

“Dear Plaidie Laddie, I’m learning how to paint. Can you give me some tips on painting items to look more realistic? ” -Darian S. from California

Dear Darian, thank you for your question!  We have a blogger friend named Colleen from Mural Maker who loves painting realistic items with our FolkArt paint.  She gives lessons on her blog, showing people how to paint items more realistically – the pot above only uses three paint colors!  Colleen shows the step-by-step photos on her blog, and she has several more painting lessons here.  Take a peek at her blog entry on the pot here when you have a chance.  Painting realistic items is much easier than you think!

Sincerely, Plaidie Laddie
