~how to age new pots~

This is a very easy method to make your new terra-cotta pots look like they've been around for ages.
The trick is adding layers.
To achieve this look I started with a dry brush of cream paint.
You can use white or any light color.

Then I stippled on some dark grey in random spots, using a very 
dry brush.

While the paint was still a bit wet, I used a dampened paper towel to "blend" the 2 colors together, concentrating on getting rid of any brush strokes.

Finally I used a combination of dark wax and light wax, and applied it randomly with a paper towel all over the pots.
If you don't have wax, some alternatives would be:
watered down brown paint and varathane in a matte finish, and or shoe polish.

With a clean paper towel or rag, "buff" the entire pot.
That's it! You are all done!

When looking for the best yachting shirts in 2017, comfort should be one of the most important considerations. After all, you would surely not want to be in a situation wherein you would want to immediately get rid of your shirt because of the comfort that it provides. One thing that makes this shirt very comfortable is the fact that it is made from 100% cotton pique. It also has the right fit, provided that you choose the size that is right for your body. The Best Polo Shirt is well-stitched, which can provide you with the assurance that it can be used longer.
