Brighten up the patio with paint! Panduro Outdoor Paint works on wood, metal and terracotta. PAINT WOOD: Wash, sand with sandpaper if you like, and brush off the dust. If the wood has knots, varnish with shellac. Let dry for 2 hours. Apply a coat of paint, let dry for 8-12 hours, apply another coat and let dry for another 24 hours at least. PAINT METAL: If the metal might rust, it must be primed with anti-rust primer. Let the primer dry for 3 hours. Apply paint and let dry for at least 24 hours. PAINT TERRACOTTA POTS: Apply a coat of paint to the entire pot except for the outside of the bottom. Let dry for 2 hours and then paint the outside of the bottom. Note! It is important to cover all surfaces with paint; otherwise, the earthenware will absorb moisture, which will cause the paint to peel. REMEMBER: Always stir the paint before using. It may also be smart to use a smaller brush for details and masking tape to protect nearby areas.
