FolkArt Color Shift™ Painted Succulents Pots

 FolkArt Color Shift™ Painted Succulent Pots
Check out this gorgeous new paint from Plaid Crafts
It's called Color Shift.
 It's got metallic bits in it to give it a gorgeous shimmer!
Just the thing for some Spring time succulents!

 There are 10 different Color Shift paints.
I got 4.
Red Flash, Orange Flash, Aqua Flash and Purple Flash
I got some fun Brushed Metal Paints too...for an upcoming post!
I used some white pots.
And painted 2 coats of paint over each of them.
I didn't worry about painting the inside of them.
Let them dry completely.
I put 2 upside down in a box and the other 2 right side up and
 gave them a quick misting of gold spray paint for a little more added shimmer.
 Then I got some darling succulents and gravel
as well as some potting soil.
 Fill the bottom third with gravel, this is for water drainage.
 Add potting soil and then the little plant.
Fill with soil around the edges.
 Give them a good drink to help get the dirt to settle and freshen the plants.
Then mist them until the soil is damp once a week.
 I love the shimmery planters, they are perfect for Spring!
Bright and cheery!
