Wipe over and dry a pot, then apply three coats of black paint, allowing drying time between each. Further coats may be required, dependent on the coverage. Sketch designs onto each one using a combination of motifs and words. Use a gel pen for the main outlines of the text and image, then add depth by shading areas using a chalk marker.
Glue a small strip of patterned paper around the base of the 'Spring is Sprung' pot and wrap green ribbon around the top, tying into a bow to finish. Add a dot of adhesive to the back of the pot or underneath the bow to secure the ribbon in place.
For the butterfly and dragonfly designs, sketch out the main motifs, then work over them with gel pen and chalk marker. Add decorative embellishments to taste, using ribbons and papers.
