Got your attention, didn’t I?! No, I didn’t discover a new form of alchemy but I have discovered the fun of using crackle medium! I wanted to try it out on something so I chose a discarded shoe box. It’s from my husband’s Euro 45/US 11.5 shoes so it’s a pretty substantial size.
For the base coat I used Ceramcoat’s Chocolate Cherry and for the top coat a beautiful Turquoise by Le Franc & Bourgeois. It turned out darker than I expected but that’s due to the dark base. I love how it turned out, it really does look like wood. Now, I just have to decide what I want to put in it!
