Choosing the right color for your space is key, color is very important. But the second most important part is the mirror. You can get one from your house that’s just begging to be redone. Or you can even buy one in my shop here to test out. Also going to your local antique shop and finding a beautiful mirror to revamp is a great way to do this project.

I start by using Vaseline and dabbing it on parts of the mirror I don’t want crackled. If you look in the picture above, I dabbed Vaseline on the detailed areas. But still painted over most of the details with my light pink paint.

Then I apply the crackle on the frame where I want it to crackle. It will go on, in a milky color, but it will dry clear.

You want to apply a liberal amount with light pressure. You don’t want to overwork it because then it won’t crackle.

Once the crackle drys completely, you can then apply your paint how you would like.

When your whole mirror frame is dry then you can wipe off the Vaseline you applied.

I personally use Crackle Tex found here. But Martha Stewart always makes good products, so I’m sure hers would work well. I just stumbled upon Crackle Tex at my local boutique and it works very nice.
