I've painted some wooden pots - 85p a set of 7 (small) and 4 (large)
- with brown acrylic paint. I gave them two watery coatings as a thick coat of paint doesn't seem to work very well on miniatures, and loses some of the realism.
In the larger pot is a little florist foam which is a great base for the little stems.
The 'parsley' is just some lichen from a railway set, which I've also used to make a moss-type surface on the daffodil plant.
