    Crackle

    This clear, water base medium offers a consistent crack that works every time.

    Can be used to crack Venetian Plaster.

    Apply between layers of plaster to cause the top color to crack revealing glimpses of the base color, creating an antique look.

    Use Crackle colors as a base coat for dramatic, shimmering cracks.

     

    SURFACE PREPARATION:

     

    All surfaces must be clean, sound, and non-absorbent. If priming is necessary, we
    recommend Primer.

     


    APPLICATION:

     

    Step 1:

     

    Apply one coat of Crackle by brush, roller, to a properly prepared surface. Remember: this initial coat of paint will be the color of the cracks. Let dry completely, approximately one hour. If a natural brick or wood surface is desired for the base, first seal with Satin Varnish and allow to dry completely.

     

    Step 2:

     

    Apply one coat of Crackle  by brush, roller. When applying by roller, a medium- or long-nap 4-inch ‘sausage roller’ (such as a Wizz™ roller) works best. The thicker the application, the larger the cracks will be.  DO NOT THIN.  Allow to dry to touch, approximately 45 minutes.

     

    Step 3:

     

    Apply one thick coat of any color Venetian Plaster (this plaster will be the overall color). The thicker the application, the larger the cracks will be. Work quickly especially in hot, dry climates
    because the cracking process begins as the plaster dries. When brushing, “cross-hatch” your brush strokes in both directions. The Venetian Plaster will crack along the brush stroke and will create erratic, wide cracks. When rolling, use a medium nap roller. (Rolling or spraying will create a more uniform, consistent crack.) DO NOT back roll or back brush; this will disturb the cracking process. For best results, apply within a 6-hour period in a relatively dry environment. Let dry completely, approximately 24 hours.
    Hint:  A blow dryer set to medium heat may be used to speed up the drying time of each stage. To prevent the paint from drying before it has finished cracking in Step 3, hold the dryer at least 10 to 12 inches (20 to 30 cm) away from the surface.

    Step 4,
    Protection (Optional):
    Surfaces that will be handled should be protected with two coats of  Varnish or Satin Varnish. Surfaces in high humidity areas, such as bathrooms, should be protected with wax topcoat
    Follow the directions on the container label.

    Coverage: approximately 80 to 100 square feet per quart (7 to 9 square meters per 946 ml.)

    HANDLING AND STORAGE:
    When not is use, close all containers tightly and store at room temperature. Do not reuse any containers and properly dispose of empty containers.
