 The paint is Distress Crackle Paint from Ranger Ink. I found it in one of the scrapbook stores my wife goes to. It is a one coat application. No need to add anything over it. The stuff is real thick and you would think it would just ruin any detail. The heavier coat you put on the more crackle you get. Go to Rangeink.com. There are some tips and techniques there and a color chart.

 Here is another pic showing the paint. That is a 1/43 scale figure (out of focus closeup) but you can see the steel scale behind with a real heavy coat of paint on some 3/16s wide wood siding. All you need to do on this is run a blade down the groove.

Hmmmm,

Interesting.

I noticed they have a clear called rock candy......I wonder how that would look smeared on a vehicles windshield?

Maybe like shattered glass?

    Thanks for the idea. My wife had to make a trip to the scrapbook shop today, so I went along. I bought a bottle of the "Rock Candy". I have a junk pile from "Berkshire Valley" next to the gas station. So I tried the paint on the windows of the old car in the pile. Your idea works beautifully. Sorry I don't have a pic to show. The small crackle in the paint is a dead on match for the shattered window. Next is to try it on some building windows. Also found that they have some other products that have some great potential. One is a silver highlite paint for cards. Great raw steel unrusted. Got another one that has extremely fine flecks of metal in a rusted color. Great possibilities for rusty stuff with a little metal still showing. Trouble with all of this stuff is $5 Bucks a pop, of course what's not expensive except the dollar menu at Macs Lounge.
