Crackle easily creates that aged, cracked effect on your project.
HOW TO USE
- Apply one coat of Dixie Belle Paint in the colour of your choice. If natural wood is desired, apply one coat Clear Coat and let dry completely.
- Stir the Crackle and apply. Do not thin the crackle medium. The thicker the application, the larger the cracks. Use a cross-hatch brush stroke to create erratic and wide cracks.
- Do not back brush; this will disturb the cracking process. Allow Crackle to dry completely anywhere from 30 minutes to overnight.
- Apply a top coat of any Dixie Belle Paint color. The cracking process begins as the paint dries. Let dry completely for 24 hours.
Dixie Belle is a US-based, non-toxic chalk mineral paint with a choice of 69 beautiful colours to suit all of your needs. The paints contain no VOC's and are easy to use as they require no priming, top coat or wax - everything you need is in the pot!
An 8 oz pot covers 3.5 sq m, a 16 oz pot covers double this - the majority of projects will require one or two coats for full coverage. Dixie Belle Paint is a thick paint that goes a long way. Occasionally you will see brushstrokes whilst painting, but these will disappear as the paint dries as Dixie Belle is a self leveling paint.
There is a 30 day curing period for the paints, but if you require something more hardwearing, consider using one of the Dixie Belle sealer products that we stock such as Gator Hide, Clear Coat or the Easy Peasy Wax - message us for more help in deciding what would be the best product to meet your desired finish!
