Painting Our BalconyLite Fibreglass Pots

If the standard colour doesn't quite match in with your scheme, the pots in our BalconyLite range may be painted.

Composition

Our BalconyLite pots have an inner core of fibreglass for strength with a skin of terracotta blended with epoxy resin for a natural exterior finish. The Dark Grey and Dune colours are already a painted finish. They are safe to use in a fully exposed outdoor situation.

Painting

If you want to match a particular colour, the pots can be painted with a good quality exterior paint. We recommend Wattyl Solagard Stone Finish as this has been proven to bond effectively with the pots and stand up well over time. The thick finish of the paint covers any imperfections or pits in the pot surface. This paint is available in approximately 60 colours.

Other paints will also work, and a low sheen / matt finish looks best.

No primer is required, and one coat should provide adequate coverage unless you are changing from a dark colour to a light colour. 

Sealing

If painted, we also recommend that the inside of the pots are sealed with a general pot sealer. This will reduce the risk of moisture penetrating and causing any damage to the paint. Read our section on Sealing Outdoor Pots.
