I used a variety of paints and applied the color with a cosmetic sponge.

Once paints are applied, add a coat of satin varnish to seal the project.

For the maple leaf, I also incorporated my Rosetta stencil from The Crafters Workshop.  Simply apply molding paste through the stencil before applying the crackle glaze.
