Crackle Finish

5 posts in this topic

After seeing the crackle finish that Gunnie and Ben put on their cranks, and seeing the video on the link Gunnie sent me, I tried to do a blue craw pattern on a crank today.

The results are in the gallery.

Short story long, it worked. I'm sure it will get easier the more I do it. But it is really not that hard. Of course, getting it to look like their crackle finish will take me some time, but I am really happy to have another technique to use.

So thanks to both of you. :yeah:

I hope these are the links. If not, they're in the hardbait gallery.

Google is my friend. Type in 'crackle medium with elmers glue'. Found some DIY instructions from crafting type web sites.
