For the darker pieces I primed them with black gesso, then painted some of the pieces with the clear crackle paint. Once the crackle dried I painted the pieces with either the Burnt Umber or the iridescent gold, then rubbed in  the old silver wax to tone down the colors.....Here are a few more close ups.....
