for cre­at­ing colour­ful ter­ra­cotta pots…

NZ Gardener - - DIY PROJECT -

1Can’t de­cide on just one colour? Com­bine your favourites. Sim­ply use low tack mask­ing tape to mark out dif­fer­ent ar­eas and paint each in your favourite Re­sene colour for a one-of-a-kind colour-blocked look.

2Add some glam with a me­tal­lic

fin­ish brushed on in a criss­cross pat­tern. Re­sene metallics come in handy Re­sene test­pots, ideal for small projects.

3When paint­ing ter­ra­cotta pots, al­ways fin­ish them in­side and out with Re­sene Wa­ter­borne Aquapel be­fore paint­ing them. This will help to stop the wa­ter seep­ing through from the in­side of the pot, so you don’t get blis­ters on the paint fin­ish.

4If you pre­fer con­crete pots with a ‘nat­u­ral look’, ap­ply Re­sene Wa­ter­borne Aquapel. It’s a clear pen­e­trat­ing fin­ish that will help keep the sur­face look­ing fresher and cleaner for longer.
