Inka Gold Crackle Technique - free tutorial at EJR Beads
« on: July 10, 2012, 06:18:01 PM »
Hi all

As promised a quick little tutorial to show how to use the Inka Gold paints for the crackle technique.
 
http://www.ejrbeads.co.uk/inkagoldproject.htm


This really is just a quick, five-minute project ( apart from baking time and the paint and varnish drying times of course)
But hopefully you can take the idea and do many more fun things with it.

The crackle technique is not new - people have been doing this technique for ages. I remember many people used to use the pearlescent dip-pen inks for this. But when the clays changed formulation, many of the old products people used for the crackle technique stopped working because they didn't dry well on unbaked clay. So its great to see the Inka gold paints work so well. At least the colours I have tried so far do!

I think these earrings look great, and the effect of the inka paints and the crackle effect is so good.  Thank you for the tut, I have now added inka paints to my increasing and never ending list of things to buy and try!!!

Great tutorial.  I've used several others and all have been supper successes.  It will be tried in the clay kitchen just as soon as I finish painting my house.  Or, if I get lucky and it rains all day. ;D

Ok, the gold colours and the indian yellow are all really similar - at least they seem so looking at them in the pot. They might be different in use, I haven't had chance to use all the colours yet. But I'd say it probably makes sense only to get one type of gold - they are all nice though.

Also I expect you can have fun mixing colours together too - they seemed to blend together nicely. So maybe a red, blue and yellow would offer up lots of colour-mixing opportunities if you're on a budget.

Or just go old-skool and plump for the colours that you like! That tends to be what I do with these things!
