Indecent Exposure in Otumoetai

Robyn from Otumoetai

Hi all, I was out for a walk this evening around the estuary down from the Goods Road entrance heading towards McCardles Park/Coach Drive, when I came across a guy exposing himself out in the open along the edge of the gravel walk path. This took place just before 7pm. The guy, Caucasian, in his 20s maybe 30s, didn’t act aggressively towards me when I question him, more dazed, so possibly high. He looked to be unkept with faded baggy black/khaki green clothes (long pants and a hoody) and had a dark coloured back pack. His hair was medium length light brown and he had some facial hair, but not enough to be defining. My husband seems to think that he’s seen him around the area before. Anyway just wanted to let everyone know, maybe keep your eyes peeled and please be cautious. I have informed the police and they have confirmed they are on the look out.

DIY - Snap crackle pot

Owner from Curtain Clean BOP Ltd

Give some plain store-bought pots a fresh new look using Resene Crackle Effect. These small, plain herb pots were from The Warehouse. I used Resene Crackle Effect to give them a shabby chic look with on-trend paint colours.

You will need
• Test pot brushes
• Plants of your choice (succulents and cacti look great with these paint colours!)
• Resene Smooth Surface Sealer Resene Crackle Effect
• Resene test pots

Step 1: Start of by removing any price stickers and sticky residue. Next, prepare your pots for painting by applying one coat of Resene Smooth Surface Sealer all over. I painted my pots inside and out using a test pot brush. Leave to dry.

Step 2: Once your base coat has dried, paint each pot in a different colour. You will need to apply two coats, waiting for dry time in between. I chose the following colours for my pots: Resene Florentine Pink, Resene Wild West, Resene Moccaccino and Resene Wafer.

Step 3: Next, apply one coat of Resene Crackle Effect to the top third of the outside of each pot. I was after quite a strong crackle effect, so I applied quite a thick coat. You could also achieve this by applying two coats. Leave to dry completely. Repeat for all pots.

Step 4: Once the Crackle Effect is dry, apply one coat of your chosen white shade over the top of the Crackle Effect; I chose Resene Half Pot Pourri. You will need to work fast applying your paint, as the Crackle Effect will start to show quickly! Repeat for all pots. Leave to dry and let the effect work its magic. Once dry, add your favourite small plants and find a sunny spot for your cute new pots! You might like to try this effect on larger pots too.
