Things to Alter Festive Fireplace

Hello everyone

I am back with an altered Christmas Fireplace from Things to Alter 

I coated the whole thing in gesso first and then painted it with black gesso. Then i coated it with weathered wood medium and then crackle paste. Once dry it leaves this deep crackle effect. Once it has all dried i painted it with English Red Oxide Antiquating cream and sealed it with crackle medium.

I decorated the top of the fireplace with some green tinsel trim and little berries which when hooked on look like baubles. 

The stockings are painted with acrylic paint and then painted with crackle medium. I then rubbed antiquating cream into the cracks.

I added mini pine cones and a tree
