Mixed Media Recipe Card 3

The library of mixed media techniques continues to build with the third in the series.

Here is what I achieved.

Mixed Media Recipe By John Bloodworth Gentleman Crafter 3

Just love this aged and cracked look.

Supplies Needed

  • Pébéo Black Gesso.
  • DecoArt Media Crackle Glaze.
  • DecoArt Media Antiquing Cream
  • Acrylic Flat Head Brush.
  • Kitchen towel.
  • Brush cleaner/preserver.


This is how to do it.

  1. Apply a coat of black gesso to the surface. Let dry. Wash brush.
  2. Apply an even coat of crackle glaze. Let dry. Wash brush.
  3. Apply antiquing cream and then work it into all of the cracks and use a piece of kitchen towel to wipe away as much of the surface cream as possible. Sometimes it helps to use a fresh piece of towel for each wipe. Let dry. Bin the kitchen towel – unless you want to keep it for another project.

Ok, that’s it for this one.

Hope you can make use of this information in some way for a future mixed media project.
