Mark Rayner transforms a simple terracotta pot into a charming wine cooler.
You will need: A terracotta pot, paintbrushes (including artists brush), latex gloves, Selley’s Knead It epoxy, Resene Concrete Clear, Resene Quick Dry, Resene Terracotta Sealer, Resene testpots of Resene San Felix, Resene Scarlet Gum and Resene Spritzer.
Wearing the latex glove, break off a small amount of Knead It epoxy and press between the fingertips until it’s well mixed.
Break off and knead more of the epoxy to press on to the side of the pot, building up a low-relief of a bunch of grapes, as shown. Allow to cure.
Apply one coat of Resene Quick Dry to the grape design, as shown, and allow two hours to dry.
Paint the grapes with two coats of Resene Scarlet Gum and the leaves and stalk with two coats of Resene San Felix. Let each coat dry for two hours.
Paint the outer sides and top rim of the pot with two coats of Resene Spritzer and allow two hours to dry.
