Crackle week - with Nikki K.

Morning everyone,

It feels like ages since I've had a post out.  Did disappear for a couple of weeks to Scotland so it was a nice long break.

This week my colleagues and I are showcasing 'Crackle', and that can be in any form :)

My project is a Tando Mini Binder.

Firstly I painted the binder in Primary Magenta, Pyrrole Orange and Pyrrole Red.

Then added stamps from Chocolate Baroque's new Indian Elephant set, stamped in Versafine Onyx Black and heat embossed with Superfine Clear Embossing Powder.

Next I added a layer of Crackle Glaze,  and left to dry.

 Once dry, add Raw Umber Antiquing cream with your finger, all over the binder, working it into the crackle.  Wait for this to dry completely, then wipe off with a slightly damp baby wipe.  You can leave as much of the patina on as you like, or wipe it back more until you get the desired effect.

The Heart was painted in Pyrrole Red and Metallic Gold, and then covered in crackle glaze the same as the binder.  I also antiqued this, before attaching to the front of the binder.

Antiquing Cream is not permanent unless sealed, so I finished off with a couple of coats of Satin Varnish, leaving the heart matte for contrast.

These binders are brilliant for storing your Tando Stencils! 

Hope you can join the rest of the team this week for their Crackle pieces.

Best Wishes,

Nikki K.
