Sparkly planters

Bring some bling and greenery to any occasion. Made by KINETA BOOKER.


  • Terracotta pots
  • Resene Terracotta Sealer
  • Resene Quick Dry – undercoat (small pot)
  • Testpots – undercoat: Resene Dusty Road; Resene Coriander
  • Testpots – Resene FX Metallics: Resene Goldmine; Resene Stun
  • Resene paintbrushes (I used PAL Detail Brush Number 6 for undercoats; PAL Detail Brush Number 2 for Resene FX Metallic coats)
  • Wooden stick to stir Resene FX Metallic pots
  • Gardening gloves
  • Potting mix
  • Plants


  1. Coat the terracotta pots inside and out with Resene Terracotta Sealer.
  2. Once dry, apply Resene Quick Dry as a fast-drying undercoat.
  3. Then, paint each pot with the assigned undercoat for each Resene FX Metallic paint. Allow to dry.
  4.  Take time to stir each Resene FX Metallic paint pot so the sparkle is mixed through the paint. Paint two to three layers, allowing drying time after each layer. Use a criss-cross technique when painting. This ensures maximum sparkle and great results.
  5. Pop your gardening gloves on, and half-fill each painted pot with soil. Put a small plant in and fill to near the top with more soil.
  6. Enjoy!

TIP: A great idea for Christmas presents because they’re pretty and made from the heart!

TIP: A basecoat is recommended for all Resene FX Metallics – with the specific colour shown in brackets on the colour chart.
