Supplies You’ll Need

Before you begin, you will need to gather the supplies necessary to apply liquid rubber to your planter box. 

The supplies you will need include:

Applying Liquid Rubber Coating

  • Start by preparing the surface of the planter box. Use sandpaper to rough up the surface and remove any dirt or debris.
  • Once the surface is prepared, use a clean cloth to wipe it down and remove any dust or dirt.
  • Apply a thick layer of liquid rubber to the planter box using a paintbrush. Make sure to cover the entire surface. We advise at least 2-3 heavy coats for optimal waterproofing.
  • Allow the liquid rubber to dry for at least 24 hours.
  • Once the liquid rubber has dried, apply a second and third coat if desired.
  • Once the liquid rubber is completely dry, use masking tape to cover any areas that you don’t want to be painted.
  • Apply a coat of paint to the planter box.
  • Allow the paint to dry for at least 24 hours.
  • Once the paint is dry, remove the masking tape.
  • You are now ready to enjoy your newly transformed planter box!

With the right materials and a bit of patience, you can easily transform your planter box and make it look like new. So, what are you waiting for? Gather your supplies and get started!
