Creative Tips

  • Surface should be dust and grease-free.
  • Stir Crackle Paint and Contact Primer well before use!
  • Use paints undiluted.
  • Depending on the surface, first apply an undercoat for smooth, non-absorbing surfaces (e.g. glass, porcelain) or an undercoat for absorptive surfaces (e.g. wood, canvas, cardboard). After drying, apply the Crackle Paint with a spatula to a layer thickness of no more than 2 mm. The layer thickness should be no thinner than 1 mm and no thicker than 3 mm.
  • After drying time of 24 to 48 hours the pronounced facet effect evolves.
  • Do not dry the Crackle Paint too quickly: Do not place on a heater for drying or blow dry.
  • Apply Crackle Paint with a spatula we recommend the SOLO GOYA palette knives set (5 parts, Item No. 41823) or the KREUL Palette Knives set (2 parts, Item No, 722831)
  • Evenly apply Contact Primer for Crackle Paint with a soft, flat synthetic brush
  • Clean the utensils with clear water before they start drying.
