4. Remove excess decoupage paper from rim of glass with nail file, held at a 45 degree angle, to give a clean edge.
5. Mix acrylic paints together until you match the darkest shading on the leaves, Apply to the glass rim & base of the glass with a sponge dabber. Once dried pick up a little gold acrylic paint on your dabber, wipe most of it off onto your craft mat & then dab over the top of the green paint.
6. Mix acrylic paints together to coordinate with the roses & paint a few lines onto each of the roses, in the direction of the petals, with a fine brush, to give more of a hand painted look.
7. Once dried apply your favourite crackle medium with Acrylic paint brush or fingers, Applying more thickly in some areas.
8. Leave to partially dry, then apply brown archival ink over, in a circular motion, with your favourite application tool & remove any excess with a dry cloth.

Tip: For a less distressed look apply crackle medium evenly & leave to thoroughly dry before applying ink, to accentuate the crackles.
