Spray paint is a quick and easy way to give items a whole new look without spending a ton of money or effort. If you're wondering how to spray paint terracotta to get the best results, we have some super simple tips for you using COLORSHOT Premium Spray Paint for head-turning color that lasts.
- COLORSHOT Premium Spray Paint (we used Cash)
- Terra cotta item
- Drop cloth or protective plastic covering
- Painter's tape (optional)
Make sure your item is clean and free of any dust. To create a striped design like we did, try using painter's tape to mask off the section you want painted. You'll want to cover over any part of the item that you aren't painting to protect from overspray. (We like using heavy paper or plastic or even more tape.)
Spray several light coats of color versus one heavy coat, letting dry between coats. Tip: Shake the can of spray paint vigorously for at least 1 minute before beginning to apply color, then continuously shake the can while applying color for best results.
When you are happy with your coverage, remove the tape and let dry completely.
COLORSHOT works permanently on a variety of surfaces, so feel free to go a little (or a lot - we vote for a LOT) crazy with color on your projects! Now that you're a spray paint pro, what sort of ideas are blooming in your mind for your next project?!
