This 1980’s kitchen crock was a yard sale find. You can use just about any jug or jar to create your own fake salt glazed vessel.
To add texture and dimension, I applied a light coating of Plasti-kote Fleck Stone texture spray paint over the entire crock surface, followed by a coat of Suede colored acrylic craft paint.
When completely dry, I dipped a cotton rag in oil-based walnut wood stain and rubbed it over the painted surface, using a clean rag to blot the excess and create an aged look. Using pictures of museum collections for inspiration, I used a piece of chalk to outline a bird design of my own on the painted/stained crock, then used cobalt blue puffy paint over the outline. To seal the deal, I added a coat of clear matte acrylic spray sealer.
