let’s get started
For my easter bunny I decided to use an egg shaped wood cutout.
I painted the background and around the edges with Dixie Belle’s Colonel Mustard.
Once the paint was thoroughly dried, I applied my bunny stencil without transfer tape.
Normally I use clear contact paper to apply my stencils, however, this is one piece stencil and it was just as easy to apply it myself.
Then I burnished around the stencil with mod podge to prevent any paint from bleeding underneath the stencil.
Adding crackle to my easter bunny
I love this product!
Such an easy way to add a little character and so far I’ve only used this on small projects and not furniture.
Before starting, stir your crackle good.
Using a paint brush or foam brush apply a liberal amount of this product where you would like to see your paint to crack.
I applied this around the bunny and just up to the edge of my easter egg.
I used my heat gun to help this dry, or you can just wait.
Once this was thoroughly dried, I then painted in a cross-hatch pattern, Dixie Belle’s Fluff over the same area where I had applied the crackle.
As the Fluff dries, you will notice areas developing cracks.
This process can take awhile, so be patient.
Due to technically difficulties, I was only able to catch a short clip in a time lapse video.
What I was able to video tape, you can check it out below!
Touching up my easter bunny
To touch up the paint around the edges of the Easter Egg, I used a fan brush and went around the edges with Colonel Mustard again.
This technique created a rustic-frame around my Easter Bunny.
You could also use a chip brush and do the same thing.
I also painted the backside of my Easter Egg with Colonel Mustard to give my project a finished look when it’s sitting in a tray in case the backside shows.
Embellishing my Easter bunny
For my Easter Bunny butt, I decided to make a small Messy Bow with my favorite colors, naval blue and mustard.
