Terra Cotta Tiered Stand
by Robin Beam, A.C. Moore
Use different size terra cotta pots and saucers to create a catch-all for your jewelry, crafts or even keys! Paint the stand to match your décor and if crackle is not your thing, use decorative painting, stickers or vinyl to make it your own.
1Paint terra cotta pots and saucers with Desert Turquoise (or color of your choice). The color that will show through should have contrast to the paint that is going to be used on top. Since terra cotta is porous it may need 2 coats to get good coverage.
2When dry, paint on Crackle Medium. Let dry completely.
3Paint contrasting color. For fine crackling, use a brush; for larger crackling, use a sponge applicator.
4When completely dry determine how you want to stack the saucers and pots. Glue together and let dry completely.
