One Step Crackle provides an aged, modern crackled effect in one easy step. It is easier to use and less expensive than two-step crackle products. It can be antiqued for old world effect or color washed for newer, trendier look. One Step’s crackle effect can be controlled by the thickness application.
Apply over painted surface. Dries clear in 2 to 4 hours. Can be antiqued with any stain or with Staining/Antiquing Medium mixed Americana. To antique, simply brush-on and wipe back. Soap and water clean-up.
- Do not overwork. Apply a generous coat and leave it alone to self-level and crackle.
- Apply over a painted or sealed surface
- To speed up dry time, use a hair dryer on the low setting and hold three feet away from the surface to prevent ‘wrinkles’ in the finish. Note that cracks will be smaller when dried this way.
- Thin application will produce small crackled effects and a thick application will produce large ones.
