Crackle Medium 250ml

Botanics Crackle Medium is a water based medium that is used to achieve an aged egg shell appearance to your paint work.


Step 1: Apply a base coat of paint to the project surface and let it dry. 

The base coat will show through the crackled top coat, so choose paint colors that contrast nicely.

Step 2: Brush a coat of Botanics crackle medium onto the piece. The crackle medium usually takes roughly one hour to dry depending on the thickness of the coat, and also the weather conditions.

Step 3: Brush on your top color of Botanics furniture paint onto the piece, loading the brush with enough paint so that each section can be painted in one motion.

Using a single sweeping motion will help prevent drag marks. The crackling begins immediately on the first layer of paint in which it comes into contact. Avoid over brushing which will erase the cracks.

To finish you can seal with L'essentiel wax or you can use Botanics clear glaze.
