Super textures, palette and flow to your painting Carole.

Those textures are fabulous Carole, I ve not heard of crackle paste before. Lovely Painting

Thanks Carole, I did the background as an experiment a bit ago and decided to try these wild flowers on it.

Great experiment, super outcome. I like the texture, the subject and your palette.

Thanks Lesley, I used Golden crackle paste for larger cracks and a cheaper DecoArt gives like eggshell cracks.

Thank you very much Collette.

That's lovely - what a wonderful effect you have created.

Fabulous texture! I just love it!

And a very successful experiment Carole, this looks so good.

What can I say about your texture in this painting that hasn't been said Carole. Excellent picture.

Lovely painting, the crackle paste works a treat

Very affective, Carole. Lovely painting.

Lovely! I do like the contrast between the silver and gold, and the depth of crackle you’ve achieved Carole.

Promising experiment Carole. Carry it on

Very effective. It has a period look, like something on the walls at Pompeii...love it.

Wish I could experiment like this.

Corrrr.....I’d love a go with that paste Carole! What a fabulous effect it gives. Do you crackle before you paint, or paint before you crackle?

Beautiful piece- great experiment! I wish my experiments turned out so well.

Many thanks everyone for your feedback on this. Fiona I used crackle first then paint.

This is really good Carole, the crackle paste works a treat with these plants.

Thanks for that Carole, it really is different and very good.

Thank you Gudrun very kind. You are welcome Fiona, thanks for your interest :)

What a wonderful experiment Carole, fabulous

Thanks very much Romila.

Lovely textures and colours, Carole.

Beautiful, Carole.

It reminds me of the fun of batique, and the randomly cracked wax.

Honestly fantastic work Carole. So creatively done.

Thank you Jenny Shirley and Michael :)

I really like this Carole.

Many thanks Hilary and David.

Great piece Carole. I would like to try that crackle paste!

Very successful experiment.

I echo the others. Fabulous texture and colour palette. Love it Carole.

Thanks Diane, Sandra and thanks Pauline, much appreciated..

Hang on Studio Wall

Acrylic, acrylic ink, crackle paste just a rough experimental piece.
