Mixed Media-Crackle Background.

The final background to play with. 
Paint the cardstock in a colour of your choice. Allow to dry. 

Put a coat of PVA glue over the dry red paint.

Quickly add another colour while the PVA glue is wet.

Work the top colour all over and some mixing with the PVA will also occur. Allow to dry or watch and wait for the cracks and patterns to appear. it might take a while but it will be rather exciting.

The products used.

The cracks that appear will also depend upon the type of paint used. This is a child's poster paint (my grandson's)and is rather runny. It is water based.
I have also used other thicknesses of paint that I will share with you as time goes along.
