Its ages since I got my fingers dirty and I love playing with different mediums and decided to give the Viva Decor range a whirl, I used the Craco Crackle Colour paint and the Precious Metals Paint and made a crackled book my supplies were bought from Creativity Direct
As it was difficult to photograph I took three pictures for you.
You can see how well the Craco Crackle colour works, it did state to leave it 24 hrs but I managed to speed up the process to 20 minutes just by using a heat gun.
It is easy to apply as you can use a paintbrush and add a fairy thick layer or use a pallet knife to spread it.
I only added the Craco Crackle to the outer casing and spine of the book once I new it was cracked and dried I sponged over some of the precious metal paint and painted the inside of the book with it too, i finished the book by attaching a ribbon around the book and tying a bow and added some memory embellishments to the front.
I used the smaller of the two books to decorate
