Clean the clay pots with soap and water, if necessary. Let them dry completely before sealing or painting them.
Apply clay pot sealer to the inside of the flower pots and saucers, if desired. This provides extra protection against water stains.
Apply 1-2 coats of acrylic paint to the terracotta pot in the color of the character you would like to paint (e.g., orange for the jack-o-lantern). Wait 1 hour between coats.
Using paint pens, add features to each character. Begin with the bottom layer of color and wait 20-30 minutes before layering additional colors.
Let the pots dry 24 hours or overnight before filling them with treats or plants.
Use extra-fine paint pens to get crisper details on the painted pots.
