Here's my test base for my Legion army. Going for an ice effect. I'm using "Tim Holtz Distress crackle paint: clear rock candy". I used these two threads as inspiration.
It's pretty simple. I painted my basing area with fenrisian gray. I cut up some small slivers of clear plastic from a blister pack and glued them onto the base. I then applied the crackle paint and let it dry for a few hours. I then did a watered down wash of temple guard blue and finally drybrushed white.
