Crackle Paste is a thick, opaque cracking material, designed to develop deep fissure-like cracks as it cures. Dries to an opaque, matte finish to which subsequent layers of acrylic paint and mediums can be applied. Tints easily with acrylic paint and cleans up with soap and water. Drying times depend upon film thickness. Very thin films will dry to the touch in several hours but may not develop much cracking. Cracks for very thick applcations can take several days to fully develop as it dries. Substrates: While it's possible to apply Crackle Paste onto a wide variety of surfaces, the extreme shrinking can warp flexible products like paper or canvas. Therefore, applications onto rigid supports such as wooden panels or hardboard are recommended. Prime the surface with 2 coats of gesso for proper adhesion.
