Cracking paste is a two-component, water-based system to produce the effect of cracked surfaces. First, apply a thin and even layer of our PENTART crackle paste base. Once dried, use a brush, sponge or spatula to apply the crackle paste. Also suítable for use with stencils. The paste will crack as it is drying: the web structure and depth of cracks depends on the thickness of the layer applied. Applying a thin layer will produce the effect of cracked paint; a thicker layer produces three-dimensional cracks. Use our acrylic paints to color the crackle paste before applying; once dried, the finished surface can be decorated using other colors or an antique finish.
