Don't waste $ on expensive 'crackle finish' paints, good ole white school glue works!  Instructions:   1.Paint wood surface with base coat paint and allow to dry thoroughly.   2. Brush  white glue on top of base coat. (A thicker coat results in larger cracks - apply a thinner coat for fine cracks.)   3. While glue is tacky, brush on top coat.   4. Dry completely.
