Create durable outdoor pieces with Patio Paint Outdoor acrylics, available in 54 colors. Patio Paint Outdoor is water-based and non-toxic for easy clean-up. It provides excellent adhesion to exterior surfaces such as concrete, terra cotta, masonry, and wood.
Shake well before using. Apply 1-2 coats depending on the opacity desired. Do not expose to moisture for 72 hours. Clean up with soap and water.
The surface will determine how much paint is needed. However, the following approximations can be used: concrete - 2 ounce bottle covers 6-1/4 square feet, 8 ounce bottle covers 25 square feet, 32 ounce bottle covers 100 square feet.
For best results, apply on outdoor surfaces if the air temperature is between 45 degrees F (7 degrees C) and 85 degrees F (30 degrees C). Allow four hours drying time before exposing painted pieces to temperatures below 45 degrees F (7 degrees C).
When painting on terra cotta pots that will be used for plants, make sure you paint both the inside and outside of the pot. The inside should be painted solid to prevent moisture from wicking through the pot and making the paint on the outside bubble up.
To antique, apply one coat of Patio Paint and allow to dry. Apply a contrasting color and while it is still wet, wipe with a damp sponge, leaving the top color showing in the crevices.
Use with a stencil to create intricate patterns on stone pavers.
Do not apply de-icers or harsh solvents to painted surfaces.
Do not use inside birdbaths, pools, or fountains.
