- Paint the outside of the terra cotta pot with white paint, including its rim. Do not paint the inside of the planter.
- When the white paint is dry, place the planter upside down onto something to keep it suspended.
- Choose any bright colour of paint and drop enough of that colour onto the bottom of the pot. The colour should be enough to cover the bottom and a little extra so that it starts dripping over.
- Next, take other colour and follow the same technique. You may sparingly the areas you want those colours to drip down.
- Use as many colours or shades of the same colour as just one colour, the choice is yours.
- Wait for it to completely dry before you put the planter right side up.
