Number of Colors / Items: 1

Painting Surfaces:
  • Wood
  • Papier mache
  • Plaster
  • Ceramic bisque
  • Cardboard
  • Paper
  • Resin

  • Features and Advantages:
  • Dries quickly.
  • Once the crackling process is completed, no further cracks will appear and the finish will not lift off after it is sealed.
  • Can be brushed on to almost any surface that will hold acrylic color.
  • Can be antiqued and varnished.
  • Non-toxic.

  • Additional Decorating Ideas/Applications:
  • How To Apply: Apply an acrylic paint basecoat color of your chocie. Let Dry. Brush on one even coat of Americana Weathered Wood - do not over stroke. Let Dry. Apply contrasting top coat of acrylic paint over Americana Weathered Wood. Missed areas may be touched up immediately.
  • When using Weathered Wood, the thickness of the top coat will directly affect the size of the crackled finish. The heavier the top coat, the larger the cracks.
  • Apply the top coat by dabbing with a sponge for small cracks that go in all directions.
  • You can antique, shade or paint over the dry, crackled surface before sealing or seal the piece with a light coat of matte spray and then antique, shade or paint on the sealed surface. The final seal should be quite heavy.
  • For dramatic results, use a black top coat over a Dazzling Metallics Glorious Gold (DA71) basecoat.
  • Use Weathered Wood on new furniture and accessories to make them into instant antiques.

  • Helpful Hints:
  • Royal Metallics and Dazzling Metallics colors will not crack when used as the top coat, but they make a great basecoat.
  • Weathered Wood is not recommended for pieces that will be exposed to weather or water.
  • Brush across for horizontal cracks, up and down for vertical cracks.
