4 ½" Dia. x 4 ?" H (Surface Area of all paintable sides: 180 sq. in.): The Faceted Fox Planter is a cute yet complex multifaceted bisque pot that will become a conversation piece in any space! The Fox Planter is a fun project for novices and artists alike, as the polysided design, with its complex shadow and dimension, is forgiving and will charm with any style! It also makes a fantastic gift for your foxy friends and planting pals! Faceted or multifaceted sculpture and pottery have roots in a number of artistic traditions including Art Deco and Cubism, but it has been perfected in modern art! The benefit of a faceted design is that it helps the observer see how one piece (or side) contributes to make the whole! When painting your Faceted Fox Planter, consider painting each panel a unique color. This will highlight the overall shape created by the individual sections! Or, perhaps, use variations of orange, blonde, and shades of gray to bring a look of reality to your modernist shape! As a functional planter, it’s important that the Faceted Fox Planter is finished with our water tight brush-on glaze after painting. This process will seal and waterproof the planter, so it can be used inside and out! Everyone loves adorable foxes, and the Faceted Fox Planter is a great project for anyone from an artistic novice to a great painter! Let the unique shape inspire you! And remember that this planter makes a fantastic and fun gift for your foxy friends and looks great in any space!
Finish options and important paint considerations: When choosing your paints and finish options, please keep the following information in mind:
1 oz of paint covers approximately 166 sq. inches.
Extra Glossy Finish: -Our proprietary solution to achieve a kiln-fired, glass-like appearance that is also food-safe when applied properly. -Required for items that need to be food-safe -The entire piece MUST be covered in acrylic paint before applying this finish. The finish will not adhere to unpainted bisque. Please calculate the amount of paint you will need for a base coat and order accordingly.
Satin Finish: A satin, non-food-safe finish is appropriate for all pieces where food-safety is not required. A base coat is not required, though it is recommended.
