terrific terra cotta After
  1. Scout out a few items that might look nice together on the patio, such as the candle holder, birdhouse, watering can we selected for this project. But the sky's the limit, so be creative with your shopping!
  2. Set your selected items on a large drop cloth in the backyard or garage. Cover nearby furry animals and their play things to protect them from spray mist.
  3. You may want to rough up any too smooth surfaces with a little sandpaper. Wipe away sanding residue and any other dirt and debris with a damp paper towel and let dry.
  4. Apply the American Accents® Terra Cotta Spray. Follow application tips and drying times on can.
  5. You may want to get a little nutty and express yourself by adding decorative touches to your items. Add your favorite flowers to the watering can or wrap some raffia (find it at your local craft store) around the middle of the candle.
  6. Display these new earthy items on your patio -- the natural finish looks great outdoors. Well done you creative genius, you!
