How to Create an Aged Column

Hi everyone! It’s Erin from Erin Rochon Design! I found a ceramic column in my local thrift store. It was the perfect piece to display one of my plants from my growing collection. Since the colour did not work I decided to use Dixie Belle Paint to create an aged effect. Here are the materials I used and steps on how you can easily replicate this look.

Materials List:

How To:

Step 1:

First, I started by giving this column a good cleaning with Dixie Belle’s White Lightning to remove any dirt and residue.

Step 2:

Once it was completely dry, I used Gravel Road and painted it as my base colour.

Step 3:

Next, using my wax paper as a paint palette, I added my colours Hurricane Gray, Caviar, Putty, and Driftwood. This is a great way to have all of your colours on hand and mix colours if needed.

Step 4:

After my base coat was completely dry, I used Driftwood to create a colour wash. First, I dipped my brush into the paint, then into a small container of water and began applying it in small sections. Then, I gently wiped back the colour wash with a damp shop rag, pushing it into the crevices. Next, I continued this step layering on each colour and blending it into the finish with a clean brush to get an aged look.
