    Default Does anyone paint clay pots

    Hi,I was wondering if any of you guys paint clay pot?What I would like to know is what you use to seal it before painting so when throught the life of the pot the water does not seap through and the painted surface start bubbling or coming off.It has been so cold here cant go outside that I have started craft projects for the spring garden season so I dont get cabin fever And start driving everyone crazy.If you know what I mean.Thanks guys have a great night.

    There is a product made by Plaid that is called Clay Pot Sealer and it works great. It comes in a spray can, and I have seen it at my local Walmart.
