After painting the petite buffet with MMS Ironstone milk paint, I had a little paint left in my jar. Waste not, want not. So, I decided to paint a few clay pots.
Here are the tools of the trade. Some MMS milkpaint in Ironstone, some 7 gypsies and Tim Holtz rub-ons, and let’s just pretend those pots aren’t painted yet 😉
I needed 3 coats of paint to get solid coverage, which is what I wanted. But this paint dries so fast you can do 3 coats in no time. I’d paint a coat, go fold a load of laundry, paint another coat, go surf pinterest, paint a 3rd coat, pour a glass of wine. You get the idea, just multi-task while your paint dries
I did not, however, take time to take photos during the process, so you’ll just have to use your imagination.
Once the paint was dried, I sanded the pots down a little, to give them a distressed look. Then I just added the rub-ons. Who doesn’t love a good rub-on? You can find the Tim Holtz brand at Michaels and Hobby Lobby.
