One Step Crackle

Product Description:
One Step Crackle provides an aged or modern crackled effect in one easy step. It is easier to use and less expensive than other, two-step crackle products. You can antique with One Step for an old world effect or color wash with it for a newer, trendier look. One Step's crackle effect can be controlled by the thickness of application.

Use One Step on wood, terra cotta, glass, and other hard surfaces.

Painting Surfaces:
  • Wood
  • Plaster
  • Tin
  • Resin
  • Ceramic bisque
  • Papier mache
  • Terra cotta
  • Plastic
  • Glass
  • Metal

  • Features and Advantages:
  • One-step easy application
  • Dries clear
  • Non-toxic
  • Soap and water clean-up
  • Can be antiqued

  • Additional Decorating Ideas/Applications:
  • The two most important things to remember when using One-Step Crackle:
    1. Do not overwork. Apply a generous coat and leave it alone. It will self-level and crackle. (If you brush back and forth too much or try to brush it out smoothly like you would a varnish, it may not crackle at all.) 2. Apply over a painted or sealed surface. Raw, unfinished surfaces or surfaces that are not completely sealed absorb part of the product resulting in little or no crackle.
  • NOTE: The dry time for this product can be shortened by using a hair dryer on low setting. However, the dryer should be held about 3 feet from the surface to prevent "wrinkles" in the finish. Also, note that the crackle will be substantially larger than if it is allowed to air-dry on its own.
  • Thin application will produce small crackled effects
  • Thick application will produce large crackled effects
