Rated 1 out of 5 by Crackle Kills.........your project! This is one of the WORST products that we have ever used! Applied EXACTLY as directed with a putty knife and after it dried you could hardly see any of the "crackle" effect. It looks like a flakey, dusty, MESS! Unless you want your project to look like it was strapped to the back of a 4 wheeler and taken through the mud....SAVE YOUR MONEY! We had to completely sand down our antique side table and start over! October 27, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love it and it was easy to use!! I was very hesitant to buy this or any product based on the online reviews. I Really wanted a crackle finish so I bought this and did a sample on a wooden paint stir stick prior to trying it on my big wood project. THis is a paint stick and a poor quality wood and I did nothing prior to painting it. I used a dark brown base so there would be great contrast against the cracks. I the used a thin layer of the Martha Stewart primer and let it dry. I then applied a moderate layer of the crackle paint in the color Sandbar. I used a putty knife and did not overwork the paint. I left some uneven areas rather than go back over and try to get an ultra smooth surface and this only enhances the look to me. When it dried, it had a great looking crackle finish. the cracks are fine so not a lot of the brown shows through but I think that dark contrast is a key to this project. Needless to say I love it and will be purchasing other colors!! I attached my picture of the pain stick and hope you can see how great it looks! February 15, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Crackle . . .Not so much Well, Making a distressed sign that's about 20" x 24" and used the proper primer, let it dry 2 hours and applied a very thick coat of Crackle Sandbar accross the surface with a smooth puddy knife and hoped the black basecoat underneath would show through. Nope. Fully dry and only a few cracks at the thickest part and just a "wrinkley" finish - none where it's thinner, and the worst part: the cracks didn't open enough to show one spec of the darker finish underneath (like the can top or sample sheet). A pic is attached showing a cracky finish, but that's only the shadow. The finish is about like drywall mud, and we are very dissapointed. Will need to start over with another product or technique. Poor product, deceptive paint chip samples and rather acrid smell - look elsewhere to get aged crackle results! January 2, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it ! I love the new line of MS craft paints. I used the crackle and the glitter paints. Love the glitter ones. January 10, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great product, but color beneath doesn't show through Did a lot of research on this product because of mixed reviews, and my project (a fireplace) came out great! Applied a the primer and let dry overnight, spread product on using a butter knife and then a 3 in. plastic putty spatula. The key (as I read on another website) is to go over it with a hairdryer which will make the cracking more uniform. That, and don't try to get an even coat. If you coat unevenly it will look more natural. :) June 16, 2012
