Arpita here,hope you all are doing fine. I have a Decoupage’d Terracotta Pot to share with you all.

This month’s theme for the challenge is Glitter and Shine. I personally don’t enjoy using glitter so I decided to add a shine element using the beautiful Craftangles reactive foils to my project and they worked so beautifully for this project.
I started with painting the pot with snow white chalky paint. Have given 2coats letting them dry between each coat.
Next I cut the squares from the Floral Batik Print Decoupage Paper and stick it using decoupage glue.
I stick the double sided glue tape around forming a border around the print.
I choose the yellow gold reactive foil for this. Cut a small piece and keep on top of the tacky surface and burnish it well using your fingers. As you see in the picture below haven’t got the proper coverage of the foil,if this happens don’t worry just burnish it over once again and it will stick. The key is to give good and equal pressure. And if you have areas where it is not sticking cause there isn’t enough tackiness,apply a thin coat of foil Magic using a brush and burnish the foil and you will get amazing results. This is what I have done you can see the results in the final pictures.
Following the same steps I did the work all around the pot at equal distance . For the top of the pot painted with gold metallic paint, you can also use gold gilding flakes or foil for the same.Finally Sealed it with 2 coats of varnish and it was done.
