Mark Rayner transforms a humble terracotta pot into a simple and elegant planter using a subtle combination of Resene colours and a shimmering pearlescent glaze.
You will need: Latex gloves, terracotta pot, paintbrush, paint roller, tray, paint stirrer, sponge, Phormium ‘Purple Haze’, potting mix, white pebble mulch, Resene Lumbersider tinted to Resene Barely There, Resene Concrete Clear, Resene Paint Effects Medium, Resene Pearl Shimmer waterborne pearlescent glaze, Resene Terracotta Sealer and a Resene testpot of Resene Whiteout.
To get the look: Mark painted the background wall with Resene Lumbersider tinted to Resene Pale Prim.
Apply two coats of Resene Barely There to the outside, top and inner rim of the pot, allowing two hours for each coat to dry.
Pour a test pot of Resene Whiteout into the Resene Paint Effects Medium and mix thoroughly with a paint stirrer.
Using a roller, apply one coat of Resene Pearl Shimmer waterborne pearlescent glaze to the pot and allow to dry.
Apply three coats of Resene Concrete Clear to the pot, allowing two hours for each coat to dry.
