How to Apply Artisan Enhancement Fine Stone

Disclosure:  This is a sponsored post in conjunction with Pigeon in the Parlour in Holly, Michigan.  Product was given to me in exchange for this post.  All thoughts and opinions of this product are my own.

Hey y’all!  I have something fun to share today.  Remember last month when a group of gals and I participated in a Secret Santa Gift Exchange?  Well, also in our box of goodies was a thrift item.  The rule was the item had to be under $5.  We would then transform or repurpose the item we received.  Today I’m revealing what I did with my very cool thrift item from Sharon over at Pretty Practical Home.


Here they are!  So cool, right?  I know I say this a lot, but RIGHT when I saw them, I knew exactly what I was going to do with them!

Thrift Before

You know my love for neutrals, right?  So, this project won’t be any different.  I gave them a quick coat of Annie Sloan French Linen and then a light coat of Pure White.

Thrift Paint

Next, using a brush, I applied the Artisan Enhancements Fine Stone.  Be sure to mix the Fine Stone before applying.

 This is a wonderful product that gives your piece texture and depth.  I thought this would be the perfect project to use this product on because of it’s unique shape.  Boy was I right, I love how they turned out!


Fine Stone is a used to create stone like finishes.  The texture is similar to sand.  Fine Stone can be applied with a brush, towel or pushed through a stencil for a very cool effect.  If applied too thick, it may crack, unless that is your desired look.

Check out that texture and a little crackling!

Fine Stone can be applied to many surfaces including furniture, cabinets, metal, concrete, walls plastic and clay.  You can use it “as is” or mixed with paint. (If mixed with paint, use a 1 to 5 ratio)  Be sure to seal your piece with Artisan Enhancement Clear Topcoat.  You can always use sand paper to remove any access, once dried.

After the Fine Stone dried, I dry brushed French Linen on top. This was a great touch!

  1. I knew you’d make them pretty, Sara! I’m glad you found a home for them and the stone effect looks perfect. Hope you have a wonderful weekend, friend!

  2. I love this Sara! I love the detail and how they really look like stone! I’ll be doing my first chalk paint project in a week or two! I’m so excited to finally try it!
