Crackle Week- Tic Tac Toe Box by Monika Maksym

Good morning all!
It is a last day of the Crackle Week and here is what I wanted  to share with you. 

This box was decorated with quick but very effective technique which is painting with brayer, and here's how to do it.

Squeeze a few dots of medium acrylic paint  on the craft mat and start rolling your brayer to get even, thin coat, then run it through box parts, I'm always starting with darkest colours, then gradually moving to the light ones.

Repeat this step with all of the colours and as many times as you like until you're satisfied with your background. Using your favourite text stamp and white StazOn ink stamp the background randomly. 

Paint the top sqare frame with gesso and then with crackle paint . Once dry add a wash of media fluid acrylic paint.

Paint little squares with white paint, then stamp it with your chosen stamps and black Archival ink.  Add a wash of media fluid acrylic paint.  Cover X & O with dark colour and stamp with white StazOn ink using crackle texture stamp. 

Assemble the box using strong craft glue and enjoy!


Decoart media fluid acrylic paint in: Metallic silver, Cobalt Teal Hue, Phtalo Turquoise, Prussian Blue Hue, Titanium White
