The amount of mixture is dependant on the item to be covered and the number of coats required. For this how to, the following mixture was more than enough for 2 coats on a bottle and one coat on 6 medium size skull fronts.

 

Mix approx 2 tablespoons wood glue together with 3 teaspoons craft acrylic and cup sand, you can add a little water to the mixture

 

Paint the mixture onto your item and allow to dry may require 2 coats (Drying time is about two hours). 

 

Cover any unused mixture with Saran wrap this will keep for a couple of days.

 

For a smoother effect use fine sand
