Make your own crackle finish











 
MAKE YOUR OWN CRACKLE FINISH
You will need Elmer's white glue, a paint brush, and a container to pour the glue into.
Apply a base coat of paint to your project.  I used black acrylic paint.  Allow to dry and apply a 2nd coat, and again allow to dry.  Once dry spread a good coat of  white glue to the entire project.   Experiment on a scrap piece of wood, before applying to your project.  Allow to dry to a tacky state, and apply an acrylic topcoat of your choice.  I used Orange for a Halloween project I was doing.   You will begin to see the cracks appear as it dries.
