How to Age a Terra Cotta Pot
Make your container garden look old with an aged terra-cotta pot
Cut to the chase and make your new terra cotta pots look like they've been weathering in the garden for decades. Chalky lime turns any pristine pot into a relic.
Stir The Mixture
In a bowl, mix garden lime and water together in a 50–50 ratio, and stir until you get a paste. You should be able to easily apply this with a foam brush; if the mixture is too thick, add water as needed.
