Ian, this is very intriguing. I've been wanting to try something like this and I'll look around and see if there's something available that's comparable. I really like that textured look. Just starting to acquire some of the larger containers and you're right, they ain't cheap, but I'm trying to pick up a couple at a time and work from there. Thanks so much for sharing this good information! Good job!

Hi From the USA!

This product looks very interesting. My question is, can it be used on foam pots? I suspect not or you would have mentioned it. But I had to ask!

I don't see why not. I am using it on polystyrene no problem.

Hey. Thanx all. I used all the first jar & am happy with it but I feel like I am teasing US readers. Would you believe the company has still not replied to any of the mail I sent them? The closest I have found in the US so far is this company ...

They produce a terracotta paint, though I am not sure if it is cost effective. There is a technique for similar results here ...

I think the correct term is faux terracotta, if that helps anyone track it down.
