Crackle Effect Tag Tutorial


First choose your base colour. I choose one darker then the top layer so it 
shows through.


Cover the tag in the base colour and leave to dry


Once the base coat is dry, add a thick layer of PVA glue over the top




Now paint your top layer over the wet PVA. The thicker the layer of PVA the 
bigger the cracks


This is how it should look once dry


Thank you for visiting
