Crackle Painting Technique


This is another faux technique. This can be done on walls or surfaces such as metal or wood. This is a nice look on small projects that you may be painting. It basically can give an item an aged look. The top paint crackles and leaves the under color exposed.

There are several products to choose from. Each can give a slightly different look. Folk Art even has a product on the market that you can use with their line to crackle paint items.

Your best results will come if you use the products for the particular line your are painting with. It really is not a good idea to mix products from different companies while doing this technique.

I would strongly recommend doing this process on a practice board first, while learning how to get the look you are going for. The width of the cracks will vary depending on the amount of product that is applied. This is one process that may be hard for you to really know what the end results are going to be. If you are a perfectionist, this may not be the technique for you!
