- Brown paper
- Paper letters
- Crackle paint
- Piece of wood
I cut out a heart from brown paper. The letters came from a pack of post it letters for poster board signs.
For this one I tried out the crackle finish from Martha Stewart. I will warn you that the directions say to apply over a primer. I didn't. I wanted the barnwood to show through the cracks.
The Martha Stewart product is THICK. It needs to be applied like spackle with a putty knife. I just used my pieces to mask the area off I did not want painted. I did not even tape them down or anything.
- Apply an even coat and then sit back and watch the magic. As it drys, it crackles! Lovely chippy paint in one simple step.
