Tips & Hints


  • Add any regular Media Fluid Acrylic to any Media Metallic to make custom metallic colors.
  • Thin applications of Media Interference Acrylics in a wash or glaze increase the visual interference effects.
  • To clean your brayer after using with Media Fluid Acrylics, roll it on a spare piece of clean paper to remove the paint. This will also create a bonus background that can be used for future projects.



  • Do not try to force dry any of the crackle products with a heat tool, fan or blow dryer.
  • Do not let products dry on brushes or tools. They clean up easily with soap and water.
  • Do not add more than 20% Media Fluid Acrylics when tinting. 10% should provide a deep color. For even deeper color, both Crackle Paint and Crackle Paste can be painted once dry.


  • Do not let product dry on brushes or tools. Cleans up easily with soap and water.
  • Apply Modeling Paste with cake decorating tips for even more options.


  • To prevent misters from blocking, spray warm water through the nozzle until it runs clear after every use. Wipe the nozzle clean.
  • If the mister has an irregular spray pattern, check the nozzle for dried paint and remove any present. Spray Media Brush & Stencil Cleaner through the nozzle until a regular spray pattern is achieved.
