Showcasing the power of Artisan Stone Effects, with growing popularity across the country we've seen it applied to walls, pots, vanities, furniture decor and more. It's been great to see NZ creativity in the use of Artisan Stone Effects in both interior and exterior projects.

So today we're featuring a Tuscan style finish that's earthy, aged, organic looking with character, variation and a great technique for not only decor, pots and furniture but also for decorative walls, an easy to do DIY with a little know how.  

We've gone for a big transformation turning a Red Plastic barrel into a Stone Barrel for the garden for @artisanathome showing that you can you turn pretty much anything you want into Artisan Stone and this time we've recorded a full behind the scenes to run you through it. The plastic barrel has been paired with a terracotta pot completed in the same technique and the two recreated as a set for the garden. Taking two odd pieces and making them work cohesively. We are firm believers that once you discover the power of Artisan Stone Effects, you start to see things differently..... you start looking at things for their shape and size rather than finish knowing you have the power to turn anything into Artisan Stone.
