Mark Rayner shows you how to create this fabulous fragrant outdoor solar light for alfresco drinks or dining – perfect for a Christmas Eve get-together.
You will need: Terracotta pot or bowl with a drainage hole (our jug-shaped pot came from mitre 10 mega), three outdoor solar lights, paintbrush, paint stirrer, good-quality potting mix, white Alyssum, Resene Resene Concrete Clear, Resene Sandtex Mediterranean effect, Resene Terracotta Sealer and Resene testpots of Resene Alabaster and Resene Bullseye.
Carefully stir the Resene Sandtex with a paint stirrer to ensure the particles are evenly dispersed.
Apply one coat of Resene Sandtex to the rim and outer sides of the pot, lightly dabbing to create a textured effect. Allow to dry.
Paint the sides of the pot with two coats of Resene Bullseye, allowing two hours for each coat to dry.
Apply three coats of Resene Multishield+ gloss to the rim and outer sides of the pot to create a high-gloss finish. Allow two hours for each coat to dry.
