Crackle Effect is a water-based and environmentally friendly product. It is to be used between two layers of Vintage paint and after the first layer of Vintage color paint is applied.
Application: Create an old-look crackle effect.
Content: 200 mL (6.8 US fl . oz.).
Coverage: Between 3 – 4.5 m2 (32 – 48 ft2) depending on the porosity of the surface.
Drying rate: Re-coatable in 4 hours, but preferably a day.
User instruction: Stir well before use.
The surface should be dry and free of grease.
Apply a coat of VINTAGE PAINT in the direction of the grains of the wood. Leave this to dry for at least one hour. After drying, apply a thin coat of CRACKLE EFFECT with brush strokes in the opposite direction. Leave this to dry for four hours, but preferably a day. Then apply your top coat of VINTAGE PAINT, again with brush strokes in the direction of the grains of the wood. Take care that you don’t paint the same area twice! Ensure you have enough paint on the brush to make one complete stroke across. A thicker top coat will create wider cracks. To emphasize the crackling eff ect, use Antique Wax of any color. Do not apply when surrounding temperature is below 10 degrees Celsius.
