BOTANICS crackle medium is non toxic, water based and quick acting. You can use the crackle medium over raw timber and then your coat of paint or you can use a base coat of BOTANICS furniture paint, followed by crackle medium and a final coat of furniture paint in a contrasting colour.
Instructions: Apply 2 coats of your desired base colour, allow to dry completely. Apply a single coat of crackle medium (a thicker coat will produce a thicker crackle a thinner coat will produce a more natural time worn crackle) Once crackle layer is dry, apply your final colour (contrasting colour). Apply your coat of paint in a single direction to ensure you don’t drag your crackle finish. Lastly either wax or top coat your finished piece.
