I painted the legs and base with lamp black and the top in antique white. I allowed the top to dry in the direct sun to achieve the crackle effect on the top. I had to clock image printed in reverse and used liquitex to transfer it to the table top. Allowed it to dry overnight and very carefully rubbed off the paper using water and my finger. Once it was completely removed I allowed it to dry several hours then applied a clear topcoat.
