Plastic Olive Barell turned into decorative stone outdoor pot with artisan paints & products
We love extreme transformations like this one, an old dirty olive barrell found at a "junk yard" (still with a couple of olives in it) turned into a bespoke decorative outdoor stone pot. A great example of Artisan paints allowing you to create and "see things differently" like unwanted plastic olive barrels into decorative stone pots. These have been transformed as part of Artisan At Home NZ to sit as feature pots on either side the entrance of a large outdoor deck area. Utilising the large scale of these olive barrels to create something beautifully unique with Artisan paints & products .
A short Video reel has been created to show you the process and artisanal journey of this bespoke finish that anyone can do with a little no how (no sanding or priming; just go for it) What we want you to take out of it is that whether it's a 1 step finish simply with Artisan Stone Effects or a 2 step finish with Stone Effects and a coloured wash or a 5 step finish with metallics. Decorative painting with Artisan Paints is pretty simple once you get your head around it, it's about providing you with the tools, paints & products to create whatever it is you can imagine for your home quickly, easily and creatively. Once you have the basics principles you can go on to create, add, adjust and stop at whatever point you like as the video below shows.
