best paint/glaze for terra cotta pots
I recently saw an idea in a magazine that was new to me- though you ladies have probably already heard/seen it.
It was a gazing ball using Christmas ornament and small terra cotta pot. Well, I have a shiny silver ball that lost its top, and would work great as a gazing ball on one of my small terra cotta pots. My question is- I'd like to paint the pot and possibly glaze it or something. In my limited experience, terra cotta pots left out in the weather crack so easily. So, I'd like to pick a paint to compliment the ball, and my garden. Is there a glaze that would also make it more weather proof? I'm thinking that doesn't matter though as the Christmas ball is very delicate also. Thanks in advance!
