|I bought a variety of clay pots--some have black paint on the inside to protect the decorative exterior from minerals and fertilizer from leaching through and, some do not--What is that black material that is painted on the inside of the pot? And can I buy it at Home Depot?|Answer from NGA

It could be several things from a black asphalt based material to some type of paint. Ask in the paint department for something that will coat and seal a Terra Cotta pot and they can suggest some good options.
Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
