E-TEAM Mission: Faux Crazed Porcelain Technique
Happy Friday and welcome to another fun filled technique blog hop with
Wendy Vecchi’s Faux Crazed Porcelain technique using Ranger’s Glue N Seal and Clear Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint, here and here. LOVE Wendy…. Love the way she ‘experiments’ and of course LOVE any and all Studio 490 products. (OMG, have you seen her CHA sneak peeks? I am going to be in search of a 2nd job to feed my Studio 490 need J).
Instead of regaling you with more of my rants and raves, how about we dive right in.
The technique is really, really simple. Apply Glue N Seal, let dry, then apply Clear Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint. Simple, easy…..the fun part was finding stuff to try it on!
As is the norm with me, I start digging out all sorts of stuff such as:
Brushed on the Glue N Seal, then the Rock Candy Crackle Paint:
I added various depth or thickness
of the Rock Candy as you can see.
Was not very careful,
rather a bit sloppy about applying it.
But that is part of the fun
Then I got the idea to add some glitter to one of the black metal tags while the Rock Candy Crackle Paint was still wet:
While that was drying, I pulled out some other stuff and lathered the Glue N Seal and then the Crackle Paint on.
Mirror pieces & mini glass bottle:
Some plastic packaging:
I used a craft stick to apply both the glue and the crackle paint.
But this next one, was an after thought. More of a way to clean the brush and craft sticks off of any excess glue and or paint:
Yup, a Ziploc bag…. once it dried though, I thought the experiment was a fail….because what I got was a nice pliable film that came right off the bag:
And to see how it would work on plastic containers, I used the only empty plastic container I had JUST to see:
Obviously I can’t use this one because of the logo but it stays on unlike the Ziploc bag and the cracks are easily distinguishable. I’ve already planning on using some Cool Whip just so I can use the lid, lol.
Now, here’s the first project using the black metal tag with the silver glitter…..to which I added Tattered Angels Fuzzy Coconut Glimmer Glaze. Just brushed it on and it was looooovvve:
Which was pretty just by it’s lonesome, but……I added some words (cut from magazines), some charms and even a messed up (from the floor) metal snap. How’s that for recycling?
The “MOJO” is just printed on regular paper – generated on my PC.
The black velvet chain is also recycled jewelry. The charm that came with this rope necklace was lost but thankfully I held on to it:
One more look:
Supplies used will be listed at the bottom of the post.
Next, I wanted to use that awesome sheet of crackle goodness from my Ziploc experience:
I dabbed some Pearl Paint onto the flower resin and used some Glimmer Glaze randomly onto the crackle film. The film is thin, but I was able to scrunch it up and glue it to the card. I used pop up glue dots to adhere the wire flower on top of the film flower. The resin flower I glued down using the Glue N Seal.
I used the rest of the crackle film on top of my paper gluing it down with a couple of brush strokes of Glue N Seal. Then I randomly added some stickles and dabbed the corners with Pearl Paint Dabber.
I created the quote on my computer and printed it off directly onto the dsp.
One last look at the card: (supplies listed below)
And because I found a Cool Whip container, I couldn’t help myself and whipped up a quick altered display. Given more time, I would finish it a bit more, like the edges…. but it should get the ideas rolling, right?
I tried to get a picture showing the cracks on the lid, but no luck.
Here is what the lid looked like after the glue/crackle dried, then I spritzed Chalkboard Glimmer and wiped excess off using a paper towel, followed by Adirondack Sailboat Blue Color Wash:
And here is the metal tag also spritzed with Adirondack Color Wash:
Here’s a couple more pictures: (Good thing I always make up extra flowers….)
I used the Faux Crazed Porcelain technique on the chipboard bird and alphas. Even though I technically did not need the Glue N Seal, but I was on a roll .
Wow…. I think that MOJO bottle worked, what do you think? Thank you so much for sticking with me.
