  • 1
    Allow paint to dry between steps. Project time does not include this drying time. Notes: The colors listed below and items listed under supplies are merely a guide; feel free to change the colors to a style you like.

    Using 1 inch foam brush, basecoat pots sides and bottoms and inside and bottoms of saucers Cloud White. Rinse brush.
  • 4
    With colored pencil, lightly draw giraffe spots of varying sizes on sides of both pots. Draw giraffe spots on inside of one of 4 inch saucers (this will be your soap dish). Tip: Don't worry about giraffe spots being exact; it is more interesting and natural if they are not.
