I just kept mixing in baking powder until I was happy with the thickness but it was still easily spreadable.
Then I just painted on the mixture.
After covering the entire pot I took little handfuls of baking powder…
… And randomly tossed it around on different sections of the pot. I patted it into the already spread paint with the same brush.
Tossing on the extra baking powder was done to give it a more handmade look & would “antique” it as the paint dried.
I let the pot dry overnight.https://621cc6f78a18d14fed566dc0f13a94b2.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-40/html/container.htmlhttps://621cc6f78a18d14fed566dc0f13a94b2.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-40/html/container.html
When I checked on it the next morning, the paint had dried to its original flat look & the extra baking powder that was tossed on added a chalky/Lime-washed style to the finish.
I am waiting on some pampas grass to arrive in the mail, but for now I styled the piece with some dried natural Piumetta Christina grass that I had found at Michaels.
If you want to do this project at home all you’ll need is…
