Pentart - Crackle Medium, 100ml
Pentart's single component crackle varnish lends a touch of antique effect to any
surface, like cracking paint. Use an acrylic or chalk style paint on the surface to be decorated and let dry. Apply the crackle medium. Once the crackle medium has dried, paint the surface again with an acrylic or chalk style paint of a different color than the original layer. The second layer of paint applied will crack as it is drying, thanks to the crackle varnish. The base coat applied initially will peek through the resulting cracks. The pattern of cracks depends on the technique used to apply the paint layers. The thicker the layer, the larger the cracks. Do not overwork the medium and apply in even strokes.
