pentart Classic Crackle 2 Part Varnish 100 ml
Classic Crackle Varnish is a water based 2 part medium, allowing you to create that classic cracking in vintage and antique cracked surfaces and painted items. Apply component 1 in an even layer and let it dry completely. Then spread component 2. The depth and the network of the cracks depends on the thickness of the layer and on the technique of the application. The layer will dry transparent and waterproof. Highlight the cracks with Antique Paste or Liquid Patina.
To apply be sure your surface is completely dry. Using a clean dry brush, brush on component 1 and let dry completely. Once dry apply component 2. The amount, depth, and pattern network of cracks depends on the thickness of the layers and technique of application. When the second layer is dry your piece will appear transparent and is water resistant. At this point you can apply Antique Paste or a colored wax to highlight the cracking.Liquid Patina, enhancing the aged appearance.
If applying over a transfer be sure your transfer is completely adhered to the piece you are working on to be sure you do not have any lifting of the transfer.
