Decoupage with crackle effect

Another wooden peg rack. This time I used a two-part crackle glaze that imitates old cracked varnish. To make the cracks more visible I filled them with a special powder called porporina.

I decorated this wooden box for my friend Nicholas. Hope it will remind him his last year's pilgrimage from England to Rome - 2000 km on foot in 79 days. Wow, this was something, wasn't it?
I used: decoupage paper in one piece, decoupage glue, acrylic paints and varnish.


  1. This book-box "Pilgrim Ways" is amazing! It joins wonderfully with Nicholas's pilgrimage. He's extraordinary man.

  2. I am very proud of my box. I keep in in my study, where I can admire it every day. But it is also very useful too. In it I keep my pilgrimage maps, badges, passports and certificates. Thank you Aleksandra for a wonderful gift, which I shall treasure always.
