LOL, I saw those in the store and questioned how they would turn out. Maybe you should post a picture.

Make sure you put the crackle layer on REALLY thick!  I have the black crackle and painted a thin layer and it looked awful.  The next time I put on one really thick layer and it worked really well.

Also, to me it looked a lot better after I put a clear coat on top!  The colors popped a lot more!

@MrsNeutrino:  Yeah, that doesn’t look anything like the pics on the boxes.  I think that bakerella did these and they looked good.  Maybe you can PM her for some tips on how to do them or the product that she used.

No that’s not how it’s suppose to look! What I don’t like about crackle is it’s hard to get just the right amount. It should look like this

I did that with Samoan Sand but I’ve also done it with red and it turned out neat. But truly it’s hard to get just the right coat-somewhere inbetween thin and thick LOL! And you have to add a top coat to make it shine. It’s very matte.

@MrsNeutrino:  Lol!  This whole thread is funny.  I’m sorry they turned out like that!  I tried some on in the store once and it didn’t seem to do……..whatever it’s supposed to do for me, either.  Hopefully Bakerella can give you some tips.

you def need to do a thick coat to get it to crack- i  think that’s your issue.
