First, you will need your choice of Granny B’s Old Fashioned Paint, 2 or 3 brushes, and Granny B’s Crackle.
shop for CRACKLE
You can choose any shade of paint that contrasts with the base coat color. For example, if you want to create a cracked look on a white surface, you can use black or dark gray paint as your base or vice versa. It works so well with a Liquid Metal base colour for a stunning decor effect.
- Apply your base coat of paint evenly over the surface you want to crackle.. Let the paint dry completely before applying the next step
- Apply the Crackle over the base coat of paint using a clean brush. Being careful not to apply too much pressure and applying strokes in a single direction I.e no back and forth strokes
- For larger cracks, apply a thicker layer of Crackle Glaze and for smaller cracks, apply a thinner layer.
- Apply your top layer of Old Fashioned Paint once the Crackle is touch-dry. To create square cracks, apply your top coat of paint in a perpendicular angle to direction or against the direction of the strokes you applied the Crackle layer with, for straight cracks use a parallel application going with the direction of the strokes you applied the Crackle with.
Cracks will start to appear within a few minutes. Allow the process to continue until the paint is dry. Seal with any of Granny B’s Liquid Sealers
