After painting a piece with Chalky Paint, you can put a coat of Quick Crackle over it and let dry. Then choose a contrasting color to paint on top. The crackle process begins immediately so you will not want to brush over and over in one place. You will see the bottom paint layer poke through the cracks. This is a great way to bring age and character to furniture, cabinets, mirrors or frames.
This process will make your piece into a work of art and help you obtain a driftwood, ombre, or beachy streaked look. The Glaze keeps each paint color separate and prevents the paint colors from melding together. To create this look, use Glaze with at least two Chalky Paint Colors. The more colors you use, the more dramatic the effect.
