how to do it yourself

STEP 1:-

DIY Mother's Day Gifts - Chopping Board Art - Step 1 | Hobbyideas

Start with a wooden chopping board; any size or shape will do, for me the bigger is better. We have given the board a crackle effect using Fevicryl Acrylic Colours and Fevicol MR. We paint the first coat with a dark colour, here we have used Burnt Sienna 01. Let it dry. Then apply a thin layer of Fevicol MR on it with a flat brush. Apply the next coat of colour Teal Blue 68 immediately before the layer of Fevicol MR dries. Leave it to dry. The crackle effect will start appearing when the glue starts drying.
