4. The dribbled-paint effect is easy to achieve; all you need is a pencil, paint, a brush and a teaspoon. Use pencil to roughly draw a wavy border around the lip of the pot, then paint within the lines. Load the tip of teaspoon with paint, place near edge of the border and tilt handle of teaspoon up, so paint dribbles down the pot. Continue this around pot until you have achieved the desired effect.
