Q.How To Darken Light Terracotta Outdoor Pots

Zone UK | Passerby added on September 3, 2023 | Answered

I purchased a couple of light, whitish, Italian style terracotta outdoor plant pots this year, but I don’t like them as they don’t match my existing traditional colour pots, which are darker. Is there any way of darkening them? I was thinking, after a good wash, of trying red quarry tile polish? Or will I need to paint them using terracotta coloured brick paint?
