I am looking for information and directions on how to crackle paint a dresser. I want this "old" look to this cheap piece of furniture, but have not been successful in finding good directions. I have heard that you can use regular wood glud as the crackle medium, but I don't know if this is true or not.

Please send me any advise, comments or guidenance you can, which is much appriciated.

You can buy a crackling kit at most any place that sells paint, with complete directions on how to use it. I recommend one or two practice projects before you try anything serious.

I agree with the post that you should do a few practice projects first. I occasionally do crafts and have done it on a much smaller scale. It is not exactly as easy as it seems...especially the first time.
