Achieve Greatness

I was lucky enough to go to an Andy Skinner workshop last weekend, and so I've been busily trying out the techniques while I still remember them. 

These are a couple of the steps in pictures but I'm not giving Andy's techniques away except to say that there's a lot of crackling and rusting.
I've used Media paints, Weathered Wood Crackle, Matte Varnish, and Crackle Paint.
Have a great weekend, and thanks very much for looking x


  1. Lovely piece, interesting technique. Hugs, Valerie

  2. Looks like you learnt something quite new and it looks amazing

    Love Chrissie xx

  3. Fabulous mega-crackle! (I'm pretty sure he's got a youtube video out and available showing how to do this, so you'd probably be safe!) And I love the Banksy girl against it... fantastic! So lovely to meet you if only briefly at the weekend!
