More Tinfoil Painting

I had so much fun with my tinfoil wreath that I've been trying this technique on other things.

Here's my bird house...though it's a little plain in front, and I'm trying to figure out what I'm going to add to it.

I love the texture!

Looks like crackle paint, doesn't it? And it's soooo much cheaper!
I think the trick in making it look aged and crackled is using the Ranger Heat It Craft Tool; when I use it, it makes more of a crackle texture.

Here's a little wall hanging I did using the tinfoil paint technique over a piece of cardboard from a pasta package. Then I painted some corrugated cardboard and glued the two together.
