Step 1: Apply strips of Adhesive Foam to the canvas, creating a frame shape. Peel the protective paper from the foam. Apply a coat of Opaque Crackle paste to the top & sides of the Foam Tape.

Step 2: Dry with a Heat Tool. Note: Keep Heat Tool about 8” from the surface and keep it moving. As the paste dries and becomes matte you can move the Heat Tool closer to the canvas. We want the paste to dry not bubble. As the paste dries, it will crackle, and the black foam will show from between the Crackle Paste. Let cool completely.

Step 3: Paint the inside of the frame with Black Gesso. Let dry. Apply various colors of the Foil Sheets to the cracks by randomly pressing sheets of foil onto the sticky, exposed areas of foam, colored side up.

Step 4: Cut a Dyary Die Cut in half. Color the Die Cut with Dylusions Paint Pens. Attach the Die Cut with an Adhesive Strip to the inside, bottom of the frame.
