lesson one of 2008

Read the directions all the way through.
It pays off. I really love the crackle look that Vee has been working over and thought i would give it a whirl.
With crackle in hand, i make my first attempt.
no luck.
a few more times...no luck.

Then I placed a call to my trusty friend Sara and she told me how it worked.
If i ever have a question, this girl without fail has the answer.
With her on the phone I read the directions and just started laughing at myself.
I got excited and started painting without reading all the way through and missed the final step.

One note to self taken.

You 'crack' me up. Okay, I know that was totally lame but I couldn't help it. Glad it is working--you inspired me to go buy a bottle so I am going to put it to use. Maybe I will make something about M+A's club. Miss you!

layers go as follows.
one coat acrylic (any color)
one coat crackle
back up with another layer of acrylic (any color)
watch it crackle.
kinda like a chia pet in progression.
fun times!
