User Feedback


For the siding and shingles, I used a Kona color stain, then I coated with crackle medium and then I used a chalk paint (Folk Art, Sheepskin)  For the siding, I also used distress ink on the edges prior to gluing and I didn't care if the siding broke because that fit in with the aging.  For the trim, I used acrylic paint as the base, then the crackle medium and then a top coat of either the brown acrylic paint or the light-colored chalk paint.  For the roof shingles, after the stain, I watered down the chalk paint and let it drip over the shingles after I glued them to the roof.  Then I wiped it with a dry cloth.  After that, I lifted (bent upwards) some of the shingles.  If they broke, all the better, as I wanted that to be the case here and there.  I also ran some sand paper over the shingles to distress them a little more.  Drying time in between coats was long though!  Crackle medium takes hours to fully dry and if you don't wait, the top coat of paint sticks and drags.  In some cases, that was ok, but overall, it's better to wait until it dries before doing the top coat.  Thanks for the question!
