Hand Painted Mexican Aztec Garden Plant Pot

The recent hot weather has inspired me to create some plant pots that would add a hot, dry feel to a garden, or room, even in winter. I hand painted terracotta pots first with bands of colour including, blue, magenta, and ochre. Then I've edged some of the bands with black. Next I've overpainted the bands with rustic Mexican Aztec inspired geometric patterns and symbols. Finally the paint was fixed with heat. For some reason that made the white paint on the fish band go a kind of peachy colour. Which, actually, looks really good and adds some artificial age to the pots. These pots would look great with a cactus, or succulent in them.
