Hobby - Crackle Paint
Perusing the awesome B.L.O.O.D forum this morning, I came across a hobby discovery that sent me reeling. One of the forum members, digerr, posted up some of his rather tasty work. Lovely muted colours on wonderful old miniatures, but what stopped me in my tracks was the shield, which you can see above and below. Look at the cracked effect, is it not joyous?
After some more reading, I discovered it was due to using Distress Crackle Paint from Ranger. I'm sure many of you have been using this for years already, but think of the myriad of applications for this. From cracked ceramic armour to breaking glass and ice.
I think I need a lie down.
