I have several of those large fake concrete pots. My wife doesn't like
them, she says they look like tombstones. She wants them painted the
color of terra cotta.
No matter how I word a Google search, all I find is spray paints for
painting terra cotta pots, not spray paints that are the color of terra
Does anyone know if terra cotta colored spray paint is available??
Who knows? The very first place I looked had something that looks pretty close
to my unpracticed eye. http://www.artprimo.com/montana_spray_paint_400ml.htm

Why terra cotta? There are several decorative spray paints available

If you get desperate, you could do the same and use a power sprayer
if you really don't want to brush.
Home Depot carries a refillable sprayer - jar and cans of compressed air
so's you can use your own paint. Paint store carries stuff for diluting
each type of paint for the sprayer. Penetrol?, I believe, is what I
used for alkyd paint when I sprayed some louvered closet doors. Worked
great, but not something to use on a huge project (I did four doors and
quite a few cans to get primer and two coats of paint on the doors).
When it gets a little drippy, I used a sponge brush with mineral spriits
to grab the drips before they set. I think an oil base paint would be
better than latex, as it gives time to fix booboos. Turned out
beautiful. Previous paint job had lots of drips, and the artist had
painted the doors upsidedown, so's all the drips pointed up :o) I
scraped and sanded lots of little spaces, but better than replacing a
solid old door with elcheapo.
On concrete pots, you might do better just using a premixed acryllic
from art store. Paint inside and out, dab into low spots. If really
fussy about color, use a darker color first and then highlight across
the surface of texture with slightly lighter color.
