I'm the type of person that enjoys doing things easy, I'm kind of always in a hurry. So, when I was looking up faux rusting techniques, I was disappointed that most of them use harsh chemicals () and can take up to 24-48 hours which is also a no. So, as I so often do, I did it my own way- fast and easy.
How To Rust A Dollar Store Pot
Here's what you'll need, cinnamon, spray paint, sand paper, and a plastic bag.
Begin by sanding the pot completely so that you see scratches all over.
Next, spray the whole pot with metallic silver paint. Don't let it fully dry!
Crinkle up your plastic bag, and while the paint is still tacky do the next step.
Spray paint your plastic bag with some black matte paint.
And go ahead and start blotting the bag over the silver paint. You can blot and also wipe it, so that you'll achieve an uneven and aged look.
If you mess up, no worries! Just spray paint over and start again. It should look something like this.
Next, spray the pot with some matte finish, and sprinkle the cinnamon over it while it is still wet.
Then tap it to get rid of the excess.
Then seal is with the matte finish and it will look like a crusty rust!
It all took 10 minutes!Hope you enjoyed and give it a try yourself!
I’m going to add a Christmas tree to the pot this season 😊 Check out more on my Facebook page.
