Mix about one part of paint with two parts of water in a cup. Brush over pot, if you think there is too much paint on the brush, just wipe it with a paper towel. Let dry for 1 hour. If you want a desperate look, after the paint has dried, use sandpaper and sand off some of the paint. Sand down more to make the pot even more desperate.
