I created this little owl wall hanging one afternoon (I was suppose to be organizing my craft room).
I used a technique I see on Pinterest. I painted my wood black and then put a coat of Elmer's glue over that. I waited until it was tacky and then put my top coat of paint on. It crackles it but i think I need to put a thicker coat of glue next time. I think it gave it a very unique look.
