I ended up sealing the inside and outside of the pots with clear concrete sealer. It came in a spray can for only $7. Worked great and was easy to coat.
Aaron helped me with the handprints. All went well right until the end but nothing that a little touch-up work couldn't take care of.
Everyone seemed to love their gift. We put Walkers age on the inside rim as a reminder of how old those sweet little hands were!
Hope your Mothers Day was wonderful!
