Questions & Answers

Can it be used on the wall with regular satin paint as a base color?

Can it be used on the wall with regular satin paint as a base color?
Asked by: Lenamura
We're unsure if the Crackle Medium will work over a Satin broad wall paint - we've not tested it with other manufacturer's products, nor any latex products, only acrylics - so we're not sure how it will perform. Our recommendation is you try it on a very small isolated portion of the wall before attempting on the entire wall itself. The more liberal the application, the bigger the cracks - the thinner the application, the smaller the cracks. Crackling will run in the direction that you paint. -DecoArt Paint Guru

What is the color of this. Can it be pigmented to be a tan or copper color? Any color for that matter?
Asked by: Fasbo
This is clear. Your first coat is the color that you want to show through the crackle. The second coat is a flat paint that will be the final color of your object. The third coat is the crackle medium which cracles the second coat, allowing the first coat to show through the crackle.

Can this product be used on metal or alluminum

This product suggests using a chalky paint for the base coat. Can the chalky paint be used on metal or aluminum
Asked by: Cracklelady
I don't know why it cant be used on metal or aluminum. Probably want to seal it after it dries.

I used the crackal paint and it's not cracking

Asked by: Joanie
Below are the instructions on how to apply the Crackle Medium: Use a brush to apply an even coat of medium over the sealed or painted surface. Brush on in the direction you want the cracks to appear. Allow to dry. Apply a thin coat of a contrasting color of paint on top of dried medium. Do not overwork ( in other words, brush on once and let it sit - don't keep brushing over it again and again). Crackle effect will occur during drying process. Once dry, seal with an Americana Decor Varnish. Cleans up with soap and water.
