Give Your Planters a Quick Ombre Look

Give your planters a fresh new look this season with this stylish ombre look.


  • Wagner FLEXiO 4000
  • Exterior latex paint in a flat finish
  • Ceramic plant pot
  • Clear acrylic sealant
  • Painter's tape
  • Stool or step ladder
  • Drop cloth


Use a stool covered in a drop cloth as a painting stand. Place the planter on top of the stool and then load the FLEXiO®4000 with paint in your desired shade.

Planter Step 1


With the sprayer set to low, spray around the planter starting at the top and continuing until about halfway. To achieve the ombre look, spray the top with the heaviest coat of paint. As you move down the planter, use less paint to coat as you go along to the halfway point.

Spraying Planters with Wagner Sprayer


Let dry completely and then spray the entire piece with a clear acrylic sealant to help protect the paint.
