Tips to Make Flower Pots

Blossoms pots are the ideal mediums to show your making systems and imaginative energies. All you require here is the material for making pots (earth for this situation) and a will to demonstrate your best on the picked medium. Being inventive, each of the one needs to do here is to investigate the conceivable outcomes remembering the accessible materials and you will soon observe a superbly organized and painted fine art enriching your home insides.

To begin with, how about we take after the initial step of picking the correct size and state of pot you are agreeable to chip away at. After the size is chosen, acquire mud that is accessible in two assortments – general dim and earthenware. Set up the picked earth through procedures like manipulating where you move mud around in hands and on table. This procedure helps in removing from air rises out of earth so that no air pockets stay after dirt is dried and terminated. Presently make some sneak past including earth and water and blending it till mud and water get framed into a soup sort appearance. This is utilized to tie mud loops together.

With everything in place start rolling out the slab and flattening the clay using rolling pin to the thickness of around a quarter inch. When substantial amount of clay is rolled out, begin cutting the slabs using soft edged tool like a butter knife. The slabs will be cut for bottom and the sides of your flower pot which will be slightly angled outward in between 35 degrees and 45 degrees. While cutting see that the bottom of side is slightly longer than circumference of bottom as this will allow pot’s side to expand out as you go further up the pot, thus giving a classic flower pot style. After the sides and bottom, the last thing that remains to be cut is the lip that extends out around a quarter inch and is around an inch tall.

Now, start putting the pieces together taking assistance from the slip you made in earlier step. First, take the bottom cut out and scratch lines around its edges using a fork and put it down with inside portion face up. Score around half inch border around bottom of sides that allows side edges to overlap. Here, you require scoring inside of one edge and outside of other to meet the requirements. After pieces are scored, slip is used over scored lines of bottom of pot which is followed by placing side slab around the bottom. While placing, ensure all scored border areas are firmly pressed with fingers. Upon tightly pressing both pieces of clay, the slip secures both pieces. In this manner secure the other cut side of the pot with the bottom part that leads to having a constructed solid structure in shape of a pot.

Now connect the last lip part on the flower pot using the same process as used in connecting sides to bottom. After the whole construction is finished, cut a round hole of around ½ inch on bottom of pot for water drainage. Allow pot to dry for around two days and while the drying process is on keep eye on the pot to see that clay does crack up. Post drying, fire the pot in a kiln and get the finished baked piece out. Congratulations, you have learnt and perfected the art of making pots.
