Crackle drawers - Valia Katzaki

Hello everyone! 

Today I would like to show you another inspirational piece made with Dusty Attic products. 

We always talk about the amazing Dusty Attic chipboard designs, but what about Dusty in Colour

Dusty Attic has the most amazing shades of acrylic paints, that have amazing coverage and durability. So I thought I should dedicate one project solely to the acrylics, Yes, no chippies at all on this one, just luscious Dusty in Color acrylics! ;)

My Greek friends can find drawers like these in Scraps n Pieces Emporium


Another view. I primed my drawers with gesso and then I applied Finnabair white crackle paste and let it dry thoroughly overnight. Finnabair paste gives the most amazing crackles so its best to let dry naturally. While the paste was still wet I embossed some fimo embellishments I made out of Prima IOD moulds. I painted the base of the drawers with Dusty in Colour Navajo White and Alabaster leaving the crackled areas unpainted. 


To paint the drawers, I made a wash of Raisin and Sugar Plum, i.e. I dilluted a small amount of colour in lots of water. I didnt want to cover the crackles, instead I wanted to highlight them. All the drawers were painted with a pea-sized blotch of paint! Talk about pigment, right? 


I randomly stamped with brown stazon ink when everything was dry. I also used some Prima Artisan Powder to further age my drawers. 


Ta dah! Ready! 


A view from the top. The dilluted colors went inside the crackles and highlighted them beautifully.
