I played around a bit with a particular crackle I've come up with (I dare say someone has done this before me though) and am really enjoying all the possibilities.
I decided to stick to basic shapes that I knew so I didn't have to spend too much time perfecting a particular shape etc. My focus was purely on creating crackle veneers - oh what fun today.
You'll notice in the pics that I've placed some components together....this is how I see each particular finished piece working. Hmm I wonder if these will ever get made up now!! :)
Let's have a look at what I got up to today.
|Two different crackles - one with Swellegant, one without.|
|Deep crackle with chalks and Swellegant. Not sure how this one will seal - it may become part of an art piece so I don't have to worry about sealing it.|
|I love this combination. The gentle arch, pebbles and tube bead - all my favourite components.|
|A close up of the tube bead. Love the Swellegant on this one.|
|Hmmmm love the Swellegant on this one too...and a plain crackle added. Again, gentle arch and pebbles finish it off beautifully I think.|
|Cracks are deliberate - wish there were more!!|
|Hmmm luscious crackle sticks. This will become a necklace - oh and it will become mine!! hahaha|
|Swellegant crackle and plain crackle.|
|A variety of tubes created today with a variety of different crackles.|
I sure hope you like these pieces, I had fun playing....and lots more to experiment with too.
