From Cardboard to Wood

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!


I'd love to hear what you think. Tell me!
