Golden Crackle Paste 236ml
GOLDEN Crackle Paste is a thick, opaque, water-based cracking material, designed to develop deep fissure-like cracks as it cures. The size and extent of the crackle pattern is dependent on many factors, including the thickness of application, and the environmental conditions (temperature, relative humidity and air flow) during drying. It has a consistency similar to cake icing, easily manipulated by a palette knife and peaks will maintain their height and appearance.
Crackle Paste films dry to an opaque, matte finish, however this product is formulated with styrene-acrylic copolymer emulsions, which means it may have a tendency to yellow. Layers of acrylic paint and mediums can be applied such as the Golden Heavy Body and Fluid Acrylic colours, making Crackle Paste easy to tint.
Drying times greatly depend upon film thickness. Very thin films will dry to the touch in several hours but may not develop much cracking. Increasing film thickness will increase the tendency to crack and also the size of the cracks. Cracks can take several days to fully develop. Do not force dry Crackle Paste, nor try to slow the drying by adding Retarder or other additives, as both conditions may interfere with the product. Crackle Paste cleans up with soap and water. Do not let products dry on tools. Keep tools wet while in use. Soak tools in soapy water to remove dried films.
