I'm Lindsey Ralston, and this is how to Mod Podge on terracotta pots. Today, I'm going to show you a fun and easy way to add some decoration to your terracotta pots and also make sure that they're outdoor weather ready. Okay to get started with this project you want to use hard coat Mod Podge. This one is specifically useful for terracotta and outdoor use as it waterproofs and makes your terracotta pot water resistant. So the art that you are putting on here doesn't get damaged in the weather elements. You also need a foam brush that you'll be using to paint the Mod Podge on. Paint your coat lightly on top of the, do it in sections but start to paint the hard coat Mod Podge onto your terracotta pot. And then lay your paper elements on there. I'm using today just black construction paper that I'm making stripes with on my pot today. Continue going in sections all the way around the pot until you get your paper laid where you want it. And then set that aside and let it dry for about 15 to 20 minutes. Once it's dry now start doing the hard coat Mod Podge over the top of the work that you've done. And you want to do three to four coats letting them dry for 30 minutes to an hour in between each one. Once the final coat is done and dry you can set that pot outside and it will weather all of the rain and elements that will come its way.
