EASTER. IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR FUN AND
EASY CRAFT IDEAS, LOOK NO
FURTHER. AMY LATTA JOINS US WITH A COOL
IDEA.>>GOOD MORNING. I’M EXCITED TO BE BACK. I HAVE A SPRING PROJECT ANYONE
CAN DO. WE’RE MAKIN GORGEOUS FLOUR
POTS. JEN: HOLDING IT THERE SO JIMMY
CAN GET A SHOT.>>ANYONE CAN DO IT. YOUR KIDS CAN DO IT. IT’S MESSY PROJECT, WHICH
MEANS YOU KNOW IT’S GOING TO BE
FUN. JEN: ABSOLUTELY. YOU CAN USE GLOVES TOO. HOW DO WE DO IT?>>USE A PLAIN TERRA COTTA POT. THE FIRST STEP IS TO PREP THE
INSIDE. A LOT OF PEOPLE DON’T KNOW TO DO
IT. THIS IS SUPER IMPORTANT. USE A CLEAR ACRYLIC SPRAY SEAL
AND SPRAY T INSIDE OF THE PO
JEN: YOU’RE DOING THAT SO THE
WATER DOESN’T AFFECT THE PAINT.>>ONCE WE HAVE WATER IN HERE,
IT CAN CAUSE THE PAINT ON THE
OUTSIDE TO PEEL OF
WE HAVE TO PREP THE WORK AREA. IT CAN BE MESSY, BUT NOT IF WE
CONTAIN IT. WE HAVE BAKING TRAYS AND WE’RE
GOING TO TAKE A REGULAR PLASTIC
CUP, SITE ID INSIDE. WE’LL PUT A LITTLE BIT OF
PACKING APER IN HERE AND SIT IT
IN THERE THE REASON IS BECAUSE
THE PAIN WILL FLOW DOWN THE
SIDES OF THE POT AND WE’LL CATCH
THE EXTRA AND NOT MAKE A MESS. JEN: WE’RE GOING TO MIX PAINTS. YOU SAY WHITE GOES WITH
ANYTHING.>>IT DOES. I’LL TELL YOU ABOUT THE PAINT
WE’RE USING, BECAUSE IT’S
DIFFERENT THA REGULAR ACRYLIC. THIS IS FOL K ART MARBLING
PAINT. IT’S ALREADY GOT A MARBLING
MEDIUM MIXED IN A CLEAR MEDIUM
SO YOU DON’T SEE IT. WHEN WE’RE SQUEEZING PAINS
TOGETHER, INSTEAD OF MIXING LIKE
REGULAR ACRYLIC PAINTS WOULD DO. EACH ONE KEEPS ITS OWN IDENTITY. IT’S GOING TO BE EXACTLY THE
SAME CHLORINE THOUGH WE’
PUTTING IT ON TOP. JEN: DO YOU HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT
HOW MUCH YOU PUT ON?>>ACTUALLY, YOU’RE GOING TO
WANT MORE THAN THAT, JEN. WE WANT TO GET THE CUP HALF TO
THREE QUARTERS OF THE WAY FULL. JEN: I’VE GOT TO SQUEEZE HERE. FOR THE PURPOSE OF TV, I’M GOING
TO GO BECAU THAT’S KIND OF
WHAT I D AM I DOING IT RIGHT?>>YOU’RE GOING TO POUR. I’M GOING TO PUT GLOVES ON AND
YOU’RE GOING TO WANT TO DO IT IN
A SECOND TO PROTECT YOUR
MANICURE SO WE’RE GOING TO POUR
THIS RIGHT OVER THE TOP OF THE
POT. JEN: THAT LOOKS GOOD.>>WATCH THE MAGIC. JEN: YOU NEED MORE PAINT THAN I
HAVE. IT LOOKS GREAT.>>AS IT FOLDS DOWN, WE’LL TILT
THE POT. THAT GETS THE WHOLE SURFACE
COVERED. JEN: YOU’RE TRYING TO GET IT TO
ROLL AROUND, RIGHT?>>EXACTLY. WATCH THAT MAGIC HAPPEN. SO THE COOL THING IS EVERY TIME
YOU DO THIS IT’S GOING TO LOOK
UNIQUE AND DIFFERENT. JEN: THAT LOOKS BEAUTIFUL. A GREAT IDEA. YOU SHOWED US HOW TO CONTAIN THE
MESS SO HAVE FUN AND GET MESSY
