DIY Decor: Crackle-glazed kitchen doors
Remove doors, sand down thoroughly and wipe with white spirit to remove fine dust and any residual grease. Paint with two coats of your chosen base colour. When dry, apply the crackle glaze with a paintbrush and leave according to manufacturer's instructions - usually around half an hour. Paint on your chosen top coat in even brush strokes and leave. As it dries, the crackling will occur - do not brush after the crackling begins.
What you will need: screwdriver, sandpaper, white spirit, 2 coordinating emulsion colours, crackle glaze kit, paintbrush.
