The pot itself is a terra cotta pot that has been primed with a waterproof barrier to keep moisture and water from affecting the hand-painted design. Each pot is then painted on with alcohol inks. Each color palette and design is unique to only that pot, truly making it one of a kind. When the ink has dried, the pot gets a few layers of waterproof varnish to ensure longevity of the pot. All will be accented with gold metallic ink.
