Liquitex 237ml - Crackle Paste

Use on its own or mix with colour to create a structurally stable crackle effect on rigid surfaces. Designed for use with acrylic paints.

What it does

  • Creates a crackled texture as it dries on rigid surfaces

  • Dries to a hard, opaque finish

  • Maintains paint adhesion, durability and archival quality

How to use it

  • Use on rigid supports only

  • Can be used on its own and painted over once dry

  • Can be mixed with acrylic colour - using no more than 15% paint to 85% medium

  • Apply paste evenly to surface with a palette knife

  • Leave to dry for at least 24 hours before painting over

  • Cracking will vary depending on how thickly you apply it - the effects will be more obvious on thicker applications but will take longer to dry

  • When using on wood, seal with a base layer of fluid/gel medium and let it dry before Crackle Paste application

  • Fully compatible with all Liquitex products

  • Recommended thickness for the best crackling effect is between 5 and 10 mm

How not to use it

  • Do not dilute with water

  • Don't force dry with a fan or heater as this may result in less or no cracking

  • Don't try and slow the drying time by adding a slow drying medium as this will affect crackling effect
