Make A Stenciled Stoneware Crock



 
 Here is a picture of the finished Stoneware crock.
 
 
I started with a plain crock.
 
You could even use a plain white canister with a missing lid.
 
Something similar to this would be easy to find at your local thrift shop.
 
 
 
 
 I used this stencil from istencils.com
 
Cathe Holden's Inspired Barn Collection
 
 
 
6'' x 6'' 
 
I taped the stencil to my crock. I used Acrylic paint- CAPE COD BLUE
 
and a stencil brush
 
 
 Using the dry brush method ( dip brush and wipe off excess )
 
with an up and down motion over the stencil.
 
I use my free hand to hold down the stencil as I move around the design.
 
 
 
 
 Make sure you don't miss a spot.
 
 
 
 Now you can remove the stencil.
 
Clean your stencil and brush right away with warm water and mild soap.
 
 
 
 Love It !
 
 
 Finished !
 
 
 
 After your project has time to dry, lightly spray with
 
 a Clear Spray Sealer to protect your Stoneware Crock.
 
You will need to gently hand wash your crock with the stencil,
 
but it should be used for decorative purposes only.
 
 
 
I  am very pleased with how this turned out. 
 
 
 
 This is a genuine piece of Stoneware  in the above picture.
 
Below is the crock that I stenciled.
 
 
 Tell me what you think.
 
Thank you so much !

  1. Nice, love Cathe Holden's stencils. Are you sure that you couldn't wash the acrylic paint by hand? I know you can't scrub it, but to just was the crock as needed?

    1. Hi Suzie,
      I just love Cathe's stencils too. The spray sealer just gives me a bit more confidence if I need to wipe down the crock. xo Lisa S

  2. Great job! I'd have no problem filling the crock with soapy water to wash it, but soaking the outside would definitely be a no-no! Your matte spray will survive a sponge-off, I'm sure!

    1. Julie,
      Thank you! The best tip I can give you is to make sure your brush is dry if you see shiny paint its too wet. So glad to meet you, please stop by again.

  15. This is just brilliant! I love those old crocks, too, but they can be so very expensive. You did a great job creating this "fresh vintage" piece.

    Thanks so much for joining the Grace at Home party at Imparting Grace. I'm featuring you this week!
