We are all cracked up with Miss Mustard Seed’s Crackle Medium. What fun! I had purchased a dresser that needed to be painted and I wanted to do something special. I figured it was time to try something a bit different.
Using Crackle Medium
Let’s see what this baby can do.
I gave this dresser a nice base coat of a pink color that I mixed up using chalk and clay paints. Mixing colors is easy. I started with a creamy white and just added very small bits of red until I achieved the color I was looking for. It’s very important to start with small amounts when mixing with bolder colors.
Then I mixed Miss Mustard Seed’s Crackle Medium and applied it to various spots on the dresser and around the mirror frame. I could tell this was going to be amazing.
Aged to Perfection
I waited until the crackle felt tacky and then brushed on some of Miss Mustard Seed’s Ironstone as a top coat on the dresser. It blended with my custom pink perfectly and when the cracks started showing up – WOW!! It is aged to perfection.
Shabby Chic Look
Can you see the faint hints of the pink? It looks as if it’s been there for years. I finished this piece with Miss Mustard Seed’s Furniture Wax and buffed it to a nice shine. What a yummy shabby chic look.
