Altered Art Technique Crackle Finish Effect

Using paint and a simple altered art technique you can create a special peeled paint effect on your altered art or scrapbooking pages. Note this process may not be acid free!


Creating special effects can be fun but often need to be practiced before trying it on a layout or special project. This particular effect also requires time to dry so this may be better done at home.

Paint your layout or area for the crackle finish with a coat of acrylic paint and let dry.

Next, paint a coat of crackle mix on top of this layer. Heat set with a heat gun until tacky DO NOT dry completely.

Finally, paint over the entire area with a contrasting color and see the beautiful crackle finish appear!

The cracks from this crackle medium are very small and subtle. Next time I plan to use a heavier layer.


You have now created a crackle finish effect!
