|Moppe chest of drawers before|
I started with a layer of pink and once that dried, I put random splashes of blue all over the chest. After that dried, it was time to get cracklin'....So I applied a generous layer of Elmer's Glitter Glue, because that was what I had at hand. Well, then I wandered off to play a quick game of chinese checkers that wasn't quick enough apparently, becaue when i got back the glue had dried hard. See, in order for the crackled effect, you have to apply the top layer of paint when glue is just starting to get tacky. So on went another layer and I sat there willing it to be ready fast. Then came the layer of Benjamin Moore's oops paint, a bright yellow called Sunflower or marigold or something. It started crackling almost immediately. Once that dried, I found it to be too bright for my taste, so I dipped a rag in walnut stain and applied it atop the yellow. Yes, sounds pretty random. But I am playing, remember? So there is not method to this madness! This is the final look I got.
