Prepared for some messy fun? Gather your chipboard pieces and distress crackle paint.
Give your chipboard pieces a medium layer of the distress crackle paint and allow to air dry for the best crackle results. They should be dry in 20-30 minutes.
Once dry, spray your pieces completely with Perfect pearls mist (I used Blue Patina) and let it soak into the cracks. You can use your finger to help work it into the cracks. Then let the pieces dry.
Once it's dry your first coat of Patina will look similar to this. You can leave it this way or add another spray of mist for a bit more patina.
Here I've added more mist and allowed it to pool in some areas. It really adds to the aged look I was going for.
Here's a closer look at the results. Now the pieces are ready to grace a project.
