Crackle paste 250 ml

kr.1,690

Create interesting textures and effects in your paintings with our crackle paste. This opaque medium can be used on a range of surfaces and is great for both acrylic and oil paints.

ADDITIONAL DETAILS

  • Ideal for a range of surfaces, including canvas, wood and polymer clay
  • Creates texture and crackle effects
  • Great for building surfaces
  • Dried to a white, opaque finish
  • Suitable for acrylic and oil paints

Directions:

  • Apply a consistent, thin layer of crackle paste to your surface with a flat taklon brush and wait till dry before painting
  • For more cracks, apply a thin coat of acrylic paint to surface first to allow paste to sit on a surface that moves underneath the paste (allowing for more cracks)
  • Drying time 2-3hrs (may vary)

Handy Hints:

  • For best results paint the crackle onto a smooth, glossy surface
  • Not recommended for paper or cardboard
  • Works better on large areas because the paste has more surface area to shrink back to and crackle
  • For smaller crackle effect, apply a thin layer of crackle and wait till dry
  • For larger crackle effect, apply a thin layer of PVA glue to the surface and wait at least 20-30mins before applying crackle paste
  • An even undercoat of glossy acrylic is ideal for timber surfaces
  • Note: If product is applied too quickly it can become ‘immovable’, (impacting the shrinking of the paste), stopping the cracks from properly forming
