Hi, It`s Lizaveta here.
Sometimes you have a very nice button that does not fit the color for your project. And I want to tell you about a method of decorating the buttons.

You will need to work:
- Acrylic paint or gesso ;
- Button ;
- Brush ;
- Crackle paint "picked fence";
- Alcohol inks "Latte".

Step 1: Apply the paint on the button with a brush.
This is to ensure that with further application Crackle paint, he was showered upon drying. Since the substrate Crackle paint on a smooth surface (like buttons), he showered upon drying.

Step 2: Apply a crackle paint "picked fence" on the button and give it to dry.

Step 3: After drying applied to the surface alcohol ink. They are very persistent and can not be erased.

And so our result.

Also, I have prepared for you a template on which cut out a small house for my last LO.

Have a lovely weekend!
