Truth be told, this was a project conceived for an editorial "backyard entertaining story" I styled. We ran out of light and it was never used SO I set it up in my yard and shot it myself. I'm not a fan of purple (at all) but love the way these three pieces play with that color range. I also dig the various shapes and patinae on the pots. Pick a pot that is interesting (please). A couple things to keep in mind when paint dipping - use standard latex wall paint (slightly diluted) in any color, pour it into something wide enough and deep enough to dip your pot in up to the point you want, rest the piece carefully so that any excess will run off below your paint line. The beauty of paint dipping is the natural paint line. You will probably want to add a little water to your paint but go easy because it should be fairly thick to cover properly. Experiment! Dip your piece in a second color once the first one is dry... if you try this at home, send me pics!
