Decorating plant containers Step 1

Beautiful flower box: Step 1

Draw a draft on paper and transfer it with a pencil to the center of one of the side panels of the planter. Then attach the drill chuck and engraving knife to your Dremel 7700 to carve the outline of your design into the wood.

Decorate planter Step 3

Beautiful flower box: Step 3

Remove the tungsten carbide cutter, insert the Dremel 432 fine-grained abrasive belt and smooth out any rough edges on your subject. For smoothing, use the SpeedClic ™ mandrel SC402 and the SpeedClic ™ polishing discs. These adapt to the outline of your subject and are useful when sanding belts are a bit too coarse or the subject is too complex and not all corners and angles could be reached with a sanding belt.

Paint the planter with a suitable paint roller and let it dry completely. Follow the manufacturer's instructions to apply donut milk on the carved motif and cover the carved area with silver leaf to create an elegant look that suits every season.
Lastly, protect your planter with a few coats of exterior paint
