Step 1: Prep Your Stencil
Create or purchase a stencil in the design of your choice, if you have a craft cutter and want to use the same designs I’ve used, check out my etsy shop and use coupon code COUNTRYCHIC to get the monogram cutting files for free!
Mix Texture Powder and paint in approximately a 1:1 ratio in a resealable container until you have the consistency of toothpaste.
Step 3: Apply Your Stencil
Spray the back of your stencil with spray adhesive. Allow it to dry until it’s slightly tacky and position on the pot.
Step 4: Apply Textured Paint
Spread your Texture Powder/paint mix over the stencil with a putty knife.
Step 5: Peel Off Stencil
Remove the stencil, smooth any overly peaked areas and allow to dry.
Step 6: Paint Entire Pot
Sand if desired and paint pot with the same colour you mixed with texture powder earlier. Allow this to dry for about 1-2 hours.
Step 7: Apply Crackle Medium (optional)
Apply Crackle Medium if desired and allow it to dry for a few hours until it’s completely dry.
Step 8: Paint Pot Again
Paint your pot with a contrasting colour and allow it to dry.
Step 9: Distress
Sand and distress – especially around the embossed area – to make the embossing stand out.
Step 10: Wax or Glaze (optional)
Apply Antiquing Wax or Glaze in your color of your choice to add extra depth and dimension to your project. Allow to dry.
Step 11: Plant
Fill with your favourite plant and show it off!
