Products I Used
First time foiling? Start with our Beginners Kit!
First, I cleaned the pots with a damp cloth to remove all of the dust and then allowed them to dry completely.
Second, I primed them with our Paint/Primer Bondago. I painted the complete outside and on the inside. Allow them to dry completely.
Third, I applied my Foil Adhesive to the entire pot. When brushing on the foil adhesive, put a small amount out on a foam plate and add a tiny bit of water (about 1-2%) to thin it down so that it will brush smoother. Make sure to apply neat brush strokes, this product does not self-level and you could see your brush strokes through the foils. Allow the foil adhesive to dry for at least one hour or longer.
Fourth, grab some of your favorite foils and transfer them to the flower pots. I used two of my favorites, Wild Leopard Spots Gold Large and Wild Leopard Spots Gold Small. I mixed them together on the pots, using one of them on the base and the other on the rim. Transfer one section at a time, creating a transition line at the bottom of the rim area. Use a plastic scrub brush to transfer the foils.
Fifth, seal your pots! I used our Modern Masters MasterClear Supreme Satin Finish and applied it everywhere, inside and outside of the pots. Make sure you seal them 100%, if water absorbs into the inside of the pot, it will want to push the foils off of the pot. Apply two good coats at 100% coverage.
