Mark Rayner makes a terracotta clock into an eye-catching feature.

Apply one coat of Resene Terracotta Sealer to the garden clock/ thermometer and allow to dry.
Apply one coat of Resene Wild West to the thermometer section, as shown, and allow two hours to dry.
Apply two coats of Resene Copper Fire to the thermometer section, allowing two hours for each coat to dry.
Apply two coats of Resene Bullion to the clock section, allowing two hours for each coat to dry.
Apply one coat of Resene Teal Blue to the rest of the clock, as shown – use a small artist’s brush to “cut in” around the details on the thermometer section. Allow two hours to dry.
Apply two coats of Resene Lucifer to the rest of the clock (again, use a small artist’s brush to “cut in” around the thermometer section details). Allow two hours to dry.
