Liquitex Crackle Paste

  • Description
  • How to Use

Liquitex Crackle Paste can be used alone or mixed with acrylic colours to create a crackle texture on rigid painting surfaces. This medium dries to an opaque, hard finish.

Crackle Paste can be used alone to create a stable, cracked surface onto which paint can be applied. Alternatively, colour can be mixed in with the medium to create a tinted cracked surface. It is great for artists looking to create acrylic artwork with an antique or vintage effect. This medium is opaque, so can't be applied over the top of existing work to give it a crackled appearance. It should only be applied to rigid surfaces. When mixed with colour is will maintain the paint's adhesion, durability and archival qualities.

Liquitex Crackle Paste is lightfast, archival, permanent, non-yellowing and water resistant when dry. It is intermixable with all other Liquitex Acrylic materials.

To use Liquitex Crackle Paste follow these steps:

  • Only use Crackle Paste on rigid supports.
  • Cackle Paste can be used on its own and painted over once dry.
  • Crackle Paste can be mixed with acrylic paint. Use no more than 15% paint to 85% medium.
  • A palette knife can be used to apply this medium evenly.
  • Leave this medium to dry for at least 24 hours before painting over it.
  • The cracking pattern will vary depending on how thickly the medium is applied. Thicker applications will generate more dramatic cracking, but will take longer to dry.
  • If you are applying this medium to wood then first seal the base layer of fluid or gel medium and allow to dry before applying the Crackle Paste.

Do not dilute Crackle Paste with water.

Do not force dry with a fan or heater as this may result in less or no cracking.

Do not try and slow the drying time by adding a slow drying medium as it will impact the crackling effect.
