About Crackle Glaze
Do you love experimenting with texture? Try crackle glaze, which you can apply in the beauty, art, and home decorating arenas. For home decorating, paint layers of crackle glaze on pieces of furniture and household accessories like lamps and vases. The glaze safely creates cracks for an antique, vintage look. You can make any piece of furniture have this look by applying a layer of glaze, letting it dry, and then painting on a layer of two of water-based varnish. When you rub the varnish into the cracks created by the glaze, the furniture permanently displays this new, or rather old, and trendy look. This same concept finds use in artwork and on fingernails too. Just layer colours upon colours, add some decorations such as sequins or sparkles if you like, and then cover it with crackle glaze. This works on nails or on canvas, for a fashionable "cracked" look. If you want to try this unique look, search eBay for crackle glaze, and let your imagination run wild.
