Hi friends! Today’s technique is a teeny bit messy but the result you get is worth it. I’m going to show you how to use acrylic paint to get the look of old clay pots and metal. It’s quick, cheap and easy too…well quick not counting about 30 minutes of drying time. 😀
You can find the full instructions in the video below!

1. Stamp containers on scraps of rust and silver cardstock. Stamp the images again on a 1/4 sheet of white cardstock.
2. Use a palette knife to scrape paint over the images on the colored scraps. Sponge on light green paint on the pots and let dry.
3. Stamp peg stamp designs in the containers on the white cardstock and die cut the images when done. *If you would like more detailed info on using peg stamps please check out this beginner video.
