Hello friends! In this tutorial I am going to show you how I took a plain plastic pot and made it into a stone looking pot. You can do this technique on any type of pot you want to change the look of.

I choose plastic because it is inexpensive and available at most stores. When you are finished you can use these pots indoors or outdoors.

To start you will need to paint one layer of Annie Sloan French Linen.

Be sure to paint the inner lip, as it usually shows on plants. Let dry.

Next, paint a second layer of Annie Sloan French Linen on in a stipple motion. This means pouncing a paint filled brush up and down to make a texture. You can do this with a round Annie Sloan brush like I did or a variety of other things like a sea sponge, foam pouncer or even crumbled up news paper. Let dry.
