Apply Hazel & Ruby stencils to clay pots. It’s a good idea to play around with the stencils to find a design you like. Also, in order to get the stencils evenly spaced around the pot, you may have to move them around and adjust them even after they are all stuck on. With the triangle/banner shapes, we moved the stencils multiple times just to get them even!
Outlining a stencil is a fun technique because you can get very precise shapes. It’s hard for me to freehand a design evenly, so by outlining the stencil (in my favorite color which is, of course, gold) I can have nice, evenly spaced triangles or other shapes that are exactly the same size.
Next, we filled in the stencil shapes with acrylic paint, going over the gold outlining again one more time once the paint was dry. I love the modern look that black, white, and gold gives on the clay pots.
