Apply base coat. Let dry. Brush on one even coat of Crackle Medium. Allow to dry. Apply contrasting top coat of acrylic color. You may paint or antique on dry top coat. Missed areas may be touched up immediately. Lightly seal with Clear Gel Varnish or Clear Acrylic Matte/Satin Finish. Two very important things to remember:
This is only used with a water-based paint.
Never over-brush when applying a top coat of paint.
If you have never used Crackle Medium before, it is a good idea to do a practice piece and get the feel of the medium. Clean up with soap and water.
