TERRACOTTA PAINTING !!

Terracotta Frame Painting!!
The word "terracotta" comes from Latin and means "baked earth". The natural texture of terracotta provides the perfect canvas for the budding artist to bring extra color and style into the garden or home.

1. Select different shape, size and design frames of your choice.

2. Sand away any rough spots or loose clay particles on the frame. You can wash the frame and allow it to dry in sun before you start working on it.

3. Paint the frame with color of your choice (acrylic paints) 2-3 coats - let dry. Hobby Ideas paint is a good brand for terra cotta. You can find hobby ideas at most craft stores.

4. When it dries completely you can decorate it with different color stones, kundun’s, variety of laces and also can do tikli work on it. When you're finished decorating/painting your terracotta frame, let it dry thoroughly, overnight is best.
5. You can hang these frames on wall or on the entrance of the house. :)

6. Similarly you can paint Terracotta pots also. When it comes to painting frames/pots your imagination is your only limitation. The possibilities are endless. Painted frames/pots make great gifts and are a fun way. :)
