How to: create colourful flower pots – inside and outside the home!

Add an extra splash of colour inside and outside the home this summer with our stylish terracotta pots.


You will need:

Terracotta pots

Newspaper/dust sheets

PlastiKote Twist & Spray Primer

PlastiKote Twist & Spray in Pink Burst, Exotic Sea and New Yellow




How to:

 step by step white background

  1. Make sure the pots are clean and dry.
  2. Spread newspaper/dust sheets out in a well-ventilated working area or preferably outside.
  3. Apply PlastiKote Twist & Spray Primer first to seal the terracotta and prime the pots. Terracotta is porous and tends to absorb a lot of paint.
  4. Apply two to three coats of PlastiKote Twist & Spray in the colour of your choice. We chose Pink Burst, Exotic Sea and New Yellow.  Allow 5 – 10 minutes between coats.
  5. The pots will be touch dry in 30-50 minutes and thoroughly dry in 2-3 hours.
  6. Plant up and arrange for a colourful display – even before the flowers have bloomed!
