Crackling End Table
- Wood end table
- Base coat (I used gold.)
- Crackle medium (Hlide glue or weathered crackle glaze -- I used black.)
- Prep the table by sanding down the wood. Apply gold base coat (This is what shines through.) Allow to dry 1 to 2 hours.
- Once base coat is dry, apply top coat of crackle (Follow directions on label for mixing instructions, if necessary). Paintbrush strokes should be in the same direction. Slowly, the crackle will begin to show through.
- Coat with polyurethane.
Completion Time: 1 hour + drying time

Always apply paint in the same direction. If you don't, the crackle will look like a mess. The thicker the paint, the larger the crackles.
