I had an idea earlier in the week which I was itching to try but I was so busy with the class release thing that I didn't have time to try it out until yesterday. I am happy to report that the results were very pleasing, so pleasing that I had to turn my test piece into a project!!
Fresco Finish Crackle Glaze on fabric and getting results like this makes me a tad giddy!!! This is probably very, very sad in some respects but I don't care if you think I'm sad cos I am, in reality, beyond happy!!
I started out with a plain piece of poly/cotton fabric with a nice fine weave, brushed on a coat of Mocha Mousse Fresco Finish Paint and dried it with my heat gun. I didn't brush my paint all the way to the edges as I thought I might be able to create a nice border around the cracked areas.
The Craft Barn Extravaganza next Saturday, so if you would like to see the sample in real life, pop along and say hi, I'll have it with me.
Hopefully, you will be able to see the detail better in the following close up shots but as most of you are experiencing the same wet. dreary day as me, you will understand that it's not the best day to be taking photographs!!
here for the details.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend despite the weather.
