Step 1: Spray Painting Aged Pots
To get this high end look is so easy! Start by grabbing the vase or pots you are going to paint. I like to spray paint in a well ventilated are, outside works great on a nice day. I used a chalk spray paint and sprayed all my pots with this base charcoal color. Another fun paint project is painting with baking soda!

Step 2: Adding mud to the vase
Time for the mud, well not real mud. Some people are mixing dirt with water to create mud, but you can get really sandy or chunky bits. I use Dixie Belles “mud.” It is a textured paste, but it doesn’t give you really big or inconsistent chunks. This style looks great for a modern farmhouse look.
Step 3: How to apply the mud
I used a rag to spread around the mud, but you can also use a paint brush. You will simply just start rubbing it all over the pot. Be sure to get it thicker in areas where you want the chunky look. If you want to try a different technique we have a tutorial on how to make white wax here.
I then really rubbed off the spots I didn’t want the dirt on, so some of the black could show through.
After I rubbed off the desired amount of mud, I let it sit overnight to dry. If there were still some spots that had too much much I took a dry paper towel and rubbed it off. If there is not enough mud to your liking, simply repeat the process.
