Bank holiday crafts

Rainy day, and Rose is tackling a crackle paint project using a leaf-table she picked up for £2 last week.

There is first a sanding job, then an under colour for what will come through the cracks, then a coat of crackle glaze before the top colour, which then magically cracks as it dries.

Or in the case of Rose the Impatient, as it is dryer with a hairdryer. Come stay with us and see it in the spare room!
