DIY Planters

May 1, 2012 | DIY, Featured

Hi lovely friends! I’m deviating from my normal Words post today to share with you a little DIY project I’ve come up with for the wonderful Liz at Say Yes To Hoboken. Don’t worry, ‘words’ will be posted on Thursday instead (I know, you can breath again, right?!).

These are some sweet little pots that I made from oven-bake clay to plant my succulents in! For the full DIY, head on over to Say Yes To Hoboken and check it out!

And if you’d like to see any of my other DIY’s, feel free to head over here.

    This clay pots are so cute that I tried them.
    But one of the pots I made is not well sealed, and let a little bit of water escape from it.
    How can I correct this ? Adding another snake on the join concerned, and baking the pot once more ?

    I used Fimo clay, and baked the pot once à 100°C during 30 min. Won’t the pot be injured if I bake it once again, in the same conditions ?
    Thanks for your help.

      Hi Poupi,
      Hmm… I’m really not sure what the best way to fix it would be. I would probably first try filling the hole with something like glue, or silicone (or air-dry clay).. but I suspect putting more fimo on and re-baking it will dry out the original piece too much and cause it to crack. The other option might be instead of planting something straight into the fimo pot, first plant it in a smaller pot and then just place that inside your Fimo pot so it won’t have to hold any water. Hope this helps!

    Poupi, this was a post on the Hoboken blog comments, I think you will be greatly encouraged and helped by: LisaGo said: I’ve done a lot of work with polymer clay, and I’d like to offer some advice:

    You can use any of the brands of polymer clay for this: Sculpey, Fimo, Premo, Katoclay. Just follow the baking instructions on the package. All of them will be water-resistant once baked. You do need to roll the clay a bit, until it feels leathery, to condition it.

    One thing that might make things easier is to bake the individual pieces first. Once they are baked, then you would use the snakes to assemble and seal the seams. Bake the assembled piece for the amount of time on the package. You can bake the clay multiple times without hurting it, as long as you use the correct temperature.

    I’m going to dig out some white clay and make these-they’re cute, yet elegant!
