Ombre Planter Feature Image

Give Your Planters a Quick Ombre Look

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


Set up spraying area

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

Spray planter with paint sprayer

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.
