With a cheerful and bright colour range, water-based deco Outdoor colours lend a palate of colours for outdoor decoration that can be used on wood, metal, plastic and even terracotta. These nine water-based colours offer excellent lightfastness, and withstand variations to temperature and humidity. As in many creative activities, surface preparation is essential. For best results, it is necessary to apply a suitable undercoat in advance. - Wood: sand the surface to be decorated with sandpaper, then wipe it with a damp cloth. Decorate the clean, dry surface using deco Outdoor colours. - Terracotta: clean the surface with a damp cloth. Apply 1 or 2 layers of gesso to the clean, dry surface (depending on the porosity of the surface), leaving it to dry for an hour between coats. Decorate with deco Outdoor colours.
- Plastic: sand the surface to be decorated with sandpaper, then wipe it with an alcoholsoaked cloth. Apply a layer of gesso to the surface once dry. Let it dry for 1 hour before decorating using the colours.
- Metal: sand the surface with a wire brush and a damp cloth. When the surface is clean and dry, apply 1 or 2 coats of deco gesso. We recommend avoiding decorating corners or areas exposed to abrasion.
