Crackle Paint Ornament


I loved playing with the Ranger Crackle Paint so much I thought why not try this yummy stuff on a glass ornament. These ornaments can be found at any craft store in all kinds of shapes and sizes. My first recommendation would be to cover the ornament in modge podge or a sealant because I found that the Crackle Paint does not like to stick to the glass as well as I hoped. Once you have the ornament sealed you can then coat it with the crackle paint. In order for the ornament to dry and not have to retouch the paint, I inserted the pencil into the ornament and let it sit for several hours. Once dry I then sealed it again with modge podge for added durablility. Adding charms or ribbons will finish up the project and make a fun, different ornament for your tree or to give as a gift.

What a cool idea!
Thanks for the tip about the Mod Podge -I wouldn't have thought to use it and it will save time knowing ahead of time.
