Cracked Glaze Effect on Tiny House
How to use Crackle Medium and acrylic paints to create the look of a glazed surface.
Materials: Art Noise Permanent Acrylic Gouache paints, Tri-Art’s Crackle Ground Acrylic Medium, Tri-Art’s Liquid Iridescent Copper, Nylon brush (1/2 or 1”) Wooden 3D puzzle house
Prime and paint house surface with gesso or Art Noise paint. This will be the colour revealed between the cracks once the Crackle Ground dries.
Allow to dry before adding Crackle Ground Medium.
Apply Crackle Ground onto one side (surface) at a time. Surfaces must be horizontal or the medium will run off the surface. Apply a generous amount by pouring and then tilt the surface to spread or pour and spread with a brush. Using a small cup to pour gives more control. If using brush, very light pressured strokes must be used or the cracks will not happen. Let each side dry before adding the medium to other sides.
Once dry the under lying layer of colour will be revealed in the cracks. Paint may be applied over the white Crackle Ground once it is dry. This should be done in light coats with either a brush or rag to avoid filling in the cracks with paint if you want the colour below to be visible.
Applying paint in multiple thin layers, glazing, dry brushing and blending techniques will accentuate the cracks and enhance the glazed effects. Tri-Art's Liquid Iridescent Copper was dry brushed on the accentuate details.
