Aged, Crackle, Distressed Finishes

Create aged, crackled finishes on a variety of arts and crafts surfaces or home decor items or even furniture.

Apply even coat over dry basecoat of Americana Decor® Chalky Finish paint. Allow to dry. Apply thin coat of contrasting colour on top of dried medium. Crackling will occur to the top layer of paint while drying, exposing the basecoat colour. The medium allows for full control of crackle results based on thickness of application and application techniques. Application techniques and direction of brush strokes will achieve various crackling effects.

TIP: The heavier the coat, the larger the cracks. The thinner the coat, the smaller the cracks.
