Step By Step Instructions

Step 1 4
Paint the pot with two coats of paint

Paint the pot with the paint, using two coats of paint if necessary, and leave to dry completely.

Step 2 4
Draw your design onto the pot using a pencil

Draw your design onto the pot using the pencil. Try to keep the lines quite faint. Use an eraser to remove any mistakes.

Step 3 4
Using a Dremel Multi-Tool engrave over the pencil lines

Follow the pencil lines on the pot using the Dremel 300 Series with a diamond wheel point 7105. It is a good idea to practise on a spare pot (or use the base) before you start the final design. Brush off any dust with a soft, dry paintbrush.
