  • Welcome back to DIY No Need To Cry with Ivelisse.
  • DIY crackle using Elmer’s glue & decoupage design.
  • Why isn’t my glue cracking?
  • When do I put the paint?
  • Can I use Mod Podge?
  • Can I leave it clear underneath?
  • I’ll be answering these questions along with giving you some tips to help you get
  • the kind of cracks you want.
  • All the materials that I used for this DIY are listed in the description below.
  • Let’s get started!
  • To start off, make sure whatever piece of glass, you're going to be working on, is clean
  • and dry.
  • Using a pouncer brush and matte white acrylic paint, give the whole bottle a coat and let
  • that dry.
  • I set mine in front of a small fan so it can dry quicker.
  • you can use a regular paint brush if you’d like, I personally prefer a pouncer brush
  • as it covers better and doesn’t leave any brush marks.
  • Saving you paint and time. and the matte white paint acts as a primer, so it also saves you
  • paint plus makes the color you put onto pop more.
  • Add a coat of the dark color that will be showing through the cracks and let that dry.
  • Can you leave it clear underneath?
  • Yes, you most certainly can.
  • Just skip the first two steps and go right to creating the crackle.
  • I’ll get into more detail about the crackle later in the video but for now, this is the
  • basic process.
  • Brush the Elmer’s glue on a section of the bottle.
  • Using a separate brush, place the paint on top.
  • I was just demonstrating on this bottle so I used a bunch of colors but it ended up looking
  • really cool!
  • Immediately after the paint is on, place it in front of a fan or use a hair dryer on the
  • cool setting and dry it.
  • The faster it dries the more cracks you’ll get.
  • Continue this process until the whole bottle is covered.
  • This is what it will look like when it’s all done and dry.
  • Add lights to this bottle and look how beautiful it looks.
  • I absolutely love how this bottle looks, this was supposed to be just an example bottle
  • but I’m totally keeping this one!
  • I just used a small flashlight I had but you can get battery powered string lights and
  • put them in the bottle.
  • Or buy a button light and place the bottle on top.
  • I think that’s what I’m going to do.
  • Okay back to the first bottle, while the dark paint layer is drying, you want to start preparing
  • the paper napkin.
  • I used this pretty lilac with greens and purples in it.
  • I cut the napkin into fours…
  • then I cut out all the designs I wanted to use from each one.
  • I only cut three out of the four you see at first.
  • So I cut the rose,
  • then the butterfly, both using scissors.
  • I used scissors because these are nice defined designs.
  • Now you’ll see me using a thin paint brush and water to get the rest of the designs.
  • I do this so it doesn’t leave a solid line that will look awful once it’s on the bottle.
  • Once you have all the designs you want all cutout, slightly wet your fingertips in water,
  • press the napkin in-between as you see here and, remove the plies of paper.
  • This napkin had two.
  • Now it’s time to crackle this bottle.
  • Use two different paint brushes.
  • You see one is more soft and the other is more like a house painting brush.
  • when you buy a pack of brushes, look for one that has that one in it.
  • I find that that one works best for the glue.
  • Have your Elmer’s glue and the paint that you will be using ready to go.
  • Using that bristly brush, load it with the Elmer’s glue and coat a section of the bottle.
  • You want to do this process as fast as you can because you don’t want the glue to start
  • drying before you put the paint over it.
  • I didn’t put too think of a layer or too thin.
  • It was in between.
  • Can you use Mod Podge?
  • No, this will only work with white school glue.
  • It doesn’t have to be the Elmer’s brand but it has to be white school glue.
  • PVA glue.
  • I previously thought that the Elmer’s Glue all was the only one that works but I used
  • both and they both cracked.
  • Depending on how thick you put this on, will determine how big, the cracks will get.
  • This is not necessarily a good thing.
  • If it’s too thick the glue will take longer to dry so the weight of the glue will keep
  • pulling at the crack.
  • Leaving a stretched out crack
  • I did this layer in between thickness.
  • So not so thick but not so thin.
  • Take the other brush and load it with the paint.
  • The trick to this is I lightly laid the paint on the glue.
  • You don’t want to press hard, Just let the brush glide.
  • You’ll feel what I’m talking about.
  • When you feel like the brush is no longer gliding lightly, Load it up again.
  • Do not try and spread the paint like you would other wise.
  • Drag until, like I side you feel it’s time to reload the brush.
  • You see that right there, that is a perfect example.
  • Do not overwork the paint and try covering the section in the least amount of storks
  • possible.
  • When you’re done... immediately place in front of a fan, or use a hair dryer, on the
  • cool setting, to dry it.
  • This is the key to the cracks right here!
  • You must use something to dry it.
  • It will not work correctly just by air drying it.
  • If You’re wondering why I never mentioned this before well, I didn’t mention it because
  • I’ve always used a fan to dry my bottles faster.
  • So I never tried it with out it.
  • When people were telling me it wasn’t working I was perplexed as it was working just fine
  • for me.
  • It only dawned on me when I was testing the other Elmer’s glue.
  • The one labeled washable school glue.
  • I thought it had something to do with that.
  • I thought it could only be the Elmer’s Glue All but that couldn’t be farther from the
  • truth.
  • When I tested it, because I wasn’t doing a project I didn’t set it in front of the
  • fan.
  • I left the room and did some house work.
  • When I got back it looked a hot mess and I thought I had figured it out.
  • Well when I went to record and show you guys why it wasn’t working for you, I used the
  • fan, except I was shocked because it worked!
  • So that’s when I realized that it wasn’t the difference in what bottle of Elmer's glue
  • you used, it was how fast you could dry it that did!
  • I apologize to those of you who tried and couldn’t get it.
  • Please try it again the way I have shown you here and I promise it will work!
  • See I did this section with this one and now I’m going to do the other section with the
  • other one.
  • I went pretty thick in this section to show you the cracks you get with this thickness
  • of glue.
  • I’m not a huge fan of those giant cracks but I wanted to demonstrate them.
  • Now I’m going to do the last section using a thin layer of glue, let that dry and finish
  • the top of the bottle the same way.
  • This is the whole bottle done and here you can see where I went heavy with the glue versus
  • where I went lighter with it.
  • The lightest is my favorite one by far.
  • I like these cracks the best.
  • Note that you can’t control all of the cracks, no matter how much glue you put, you might
  • get a big crack somewhere or not enough cracks somewhere else, but you can control it enough
  • that it gets the look you’re going for.
  • Now it’s time to decoupage the paper napkin designs onto the bottle.
  • Using Mod Podge and a brush, I placed glue on the section I was going to place the napkin,
  • place the napkin and using a crumpled up piece of plastic wrap, I lightly smooth out the
  • wrinkles.
  • Cover that with more Mod Podge and always go from the center, outward.
  • Place all your designs where you want them using this same method.
  • If you are new to decoupaging, let each one dry before placing the next so you don’t
  • mess it up.
  • Once they're all on, I used three paint colors that matched the napkin and randomly smudged
  • it all over the bottle to make the bottle look really old and vintage.
  • Let that dry and seal it with whatever sealer you like.
  • These are my favorites at this time.
  • I used the polycyclic spray for this bottle.
  • Seal it and let it completely dry!
  • And here's the finished bottle!
  • I hope that this tutorial was helpful and that I was able to answer some of your questions.
  • If you are one of the people having trouble with this, please give it another go, it will
  • work!
  • It’s really an easy thing once you’ve got the hang of it.
  • If you do try it please show me!

A tiny bit about myself:
I’m a 40-year-old recovering alcohol/drug addict. I’ve been sober and clean since August 2014. I took the very bottles that were killing me and started to turn them into art. I’ve been through so much in my life and one of my lifelong goals is to one day share my stories in hopes to help others, who are going through the same things, know that you can survive it all and live again. The other is to become an artist and show my work in a gallery one day. Until that day I will share my God-given artistic abilities along with my dorkiness with everyone in hopes that I can bring some happiness, inspiration, and smiles, if only for a brief moment, in a world that can be very cruel at times. I thank the lord every day for always keeping me alive in situations where I thought I was going to die and for never leaving my side.
