I know it is early, but I'm not going to be able to get this up tomorrow morning. Rather post it early than late.

Today's technique/tutorial is: Faux Barn Board Technique

Here are some tutorials for this technique:
Splitcoaststampers - Tutorials
Faux Barnboard - YouTube

Approximate time from start to finish: About 15-20 minutes if you use a heat tool. Longer if you let it dry on its own.

Difficulty: I'm going to say about a 4.

Suggestions: You will get different results with different types of acrylic paint.

If you use the heat tool on the glue, it only dries the top layer of glue. You have to heat from the back side too. (I actually didn't know this when I tried it - found it out on the video tutorial).

I've seen projects with both red and white barn board. So don't be afraid to play with color.

It takes some practice to figure out when the glue is "just sticky". Too dry and the paint doesn't crack well, too wet and it gets globby looking.

Here are my 4 attempts at this technique:

1st attempt using a red paint with brown ink base and red paint top coat...glue got a little too dry and didn't make very big cracks at all.


2nd attempt using a white paint with brown ink base and white paint top coat...glue was still too wet and got a globby look.


3rd attempt using a white paint with brown ink base and a white top coat...glue was just about right I think.


4th attempt using a white paint with brown ink base and a red top coat...I really wanted a red barn board, but just didn't like the combo used.


Here is an example of a card where I used the barn board technique:


See more examples of barn board technique here (may have to have an account to view it): Stampin Up! Gallery: Faux Barn Board by Chrissy Turk - Page 1 - Cards & More - Splitcoaststampers

Now it is your turn!! I challenge you to try this technique!!

So this is instead of crackle paint?

Another option for those who don't have any crackle paint. Also, I haven't tried the crackle paint yet where I don't have any, but watching some videos on it it appears to have a little bit of a different look to it than this technique.

Here are a few videos on the crackle paint.
