Here's what Laura had to say about her tutorial: When I was designing the ATC below I wanted the image of Botticelli’s Venus to have the look of an aged crackle painting. The problem is that the crackle techniques and products, with which I’m familiar, would cover the image when painted over with crackle medium and paint or crackle paint. I had been working with Grafix Rub-Onz for a while and I got the idea that maybe I could achieve the effect I wanted by first crackling paper and then applying a rub-on over the crackled paper. It worked! Not only does is look aged but also has a worn texture.
