    Hello. I second David Dives. I love the idea of recycling. Since I was a child I learn to recycle almost everything. I live in Curacao. My question is also whether to use paint or permanent marker and whether it should be sealed with a sealer and what type. Painted or spray. I live in the tropics where it is very sunny and dry. Especially now with this climate change. And another question is how to hang the planters. It would be very interesting to follow a tutorial. Can you recommend me ? Thank you very much for sharing your nice and pretty art. God Bless you. Keep up the good work. Keep good and stay/be safe.

      Hello.
      First of all, thank you very much for your sensitivity to recycling and for your good words. You can find sunlight resistant markers very easily on the internet. However, all paints and plastics can be slightly damaged when exposed to intense sunlight. From time to time, you can go over the shape you draw with the markers. When it comes to hanging, you can use durable rope or wire with a hook. In addition, you can use potholders, which you can easily find in the hardware store. Have a great day 🙂

      Hello Paloma, thank you for getting in touch with us. We are sorry to hear that. Did the marker leak on your bottle?

    What kind of permanent markers did you all use? And if paint is involved, what type of paint is best used for outside hanging?
    Beautiful work done!

    What is good to use for water resistant for the milk jugs? Don’t won’t paint to smear from morning due!?
