This is a close up of the Golden crackle paste. I have painted it with a coat of Golden Burnt Umber which gave it a lovely 'leathery' look. I then dry brushed Golden Irridesent Bronze very lightly over the top.
The book will have something added to the top portion, when I find just the right piece to go there. Iwill also add some dimensional items to the window section.
This was great fun and I was really happy with how the crackle paste turned out.
