Crackled Glass

Good morning, happy Saturday. Kirsten here again, covering Lisa's Saturday post while she's on honeymoon.
I wanted to see if the Imagination Crafts' crackle medium would work on glass & it did, as long as you prepare the surface first..............
Start with a clean surface & brush on a very thin coat of a matte medium - I used Mod Podge, this will give the CM something to stick to. Leave it air dry thoroughly. Once it's dry, brush on the crackle medium. I varied the amount I used; more on some areas than others. Again, leave it to air dry thoroughly.
When the crackle is completely dry, brush on your chosen acrylic paint. Try for even strokes & don't go back over the paint, this stops the crackle from happening. The cracks should start appearing immediately.................

I painted the bottle with Silkies - Sunshine Satin, Sunset Satin & Tuscan Satin & added gold stickles. And because I couldn't leave the bottle empty, I made two OTT flowers from the Woodware
Clear Magic stamp 'Georgina' & its mini version, some painted card & chopsticks............

Thanks for looking. I think that's the last of my crackle medium projects, I'll be back tomorrow with something else.

  1. Lovely idea for a unique but cheap vase! The Imagination Crafts crackle medium works and boy does it work fast when you apply the paint. My tester piece is drying as we speak...
