Oh! Impressive texture you use there! I did check out your page and learn that you using crackle paste. I wonder how it works?.. Do it work on any surface?

Crackle paste needs a firm support.  I tested it first on matboard (like what is used around paintings, inside frames) and it did OKAY, but it works much better on either stretched canvas or wood.  There are several brands, but I've only achieved such awesome results with Golden crackle paste.
Thanks for asking!  :musicnote:

What is stretched canvas? How can I tell if my canvas I have at
home is stretched or not?

Sorry.  Bear Emoji-02 (Blush) [V1]  If it is on a roll, you have to cut & stretch it yourself -- pulling it taut over a wooden frame.  If it is already on the wooden frame and stapled to it, then it is considered "stretched canvas" -- which REALLY means PRE-stretched canvas, lol.  If it is bright white, it is most likely pre-primed as well -- in which case it may also indicate that it is "ready to paint".  If your canvas is a yellowish color, you may need to prime it yourself using gesso, which just keeps the paint from soaking into the fabric and gives it a surface to sit upon.  Gesso is typically pretty cheap, but buying pre-stretched, pre-primed, ready-to-paint canvas has become rather inexpensive through local art supply stores like Hobby Lobby and Michaels -- or buy it online, perhaps on Amazon.  Sorry for the book-length answer, lol.  OMG MOAR POEMS!
