DIY Aged Pottery
Here's what I started with...
And Here's the finished pot. Let's look at how we get there.
Joint Compound, I like the ready mix version.
What you'll need
Craft paint or any spare paint you have laying around.
besides your pot...
Apply the compound
I like to use my fingers and hands. But you can use tools or gloved hands...whatever you prefer!
After a couple layers of compound...you need to let dry in between layers. Then, you'll sand it down to the texture you want.
I wanted a dark terracotta color, so I mixed gray, brown, and terracotta
Here is what my pot looked like after a few layers of paint mixed with baking soda for a more textured look
Then, I dry brushed a layer of light gray. I did this a couple of times until I got the color I wanted.
The baking soda adds a little more texture on top of the compound.
I absolutely love how it turned out. I think it really looks like an old piece of pottery.
These are the very first pots that I did. I love them!
The vase of flowers is another pot that I refinished.
The vase full of flowers I refinished with the same steps, just with different colors.
