Painting inside the rim, eyeball it straight with brush.

Get the feet ready! Remember left foot is right wing and right foot is left wing!
I poured the paint out and had them put a foot in. Then I blotted foot on newspaper before putting it on pot. You don't want too much paint on the foot. May have to try a few times -just repaint white
Paint the butterfly with black paint and paint name in a color of your choice.
Paint date on bottom of pot.
Spray with acrylic sealer. This should make it waterproof over the paint. This one was from michaels and is a matte finish.
