1. Paint the frame with the white paint.  Add large chunky sections of blue paint.  Dry brush the blue paint to the edges and corners of the frame.  Allow to dry 1 hour. 

2. Once dry apply a coat of crackle medium.  Allow the crackle medium to dry for at least 4 hours in order for the crackle finish to work properly.

3. Working quickly and with one coat only, topcoat the frame with the raw sienna paint.  The crackle will begin almost immediately.  Allow to dry for 1 hour.

4. Paint the entire frame with a gloss sealer.
