  • Produces a cracked paint effect


  • The Crackle Base Coat is sandwiched between two contrasting coloured layers of vinyl matt emulsion
  • The first coat of emulsion determines the colour of the crack and the second, the overall colour of the project
  • The first coat of emulsion should be brushed out  and layered off in one direction as this determines the directional lines in the crackle
  • Allow the emulsion to dry, follow the overcoating times stated by the manufacturer


  • Brush apply the Crackle Base Coat in the same direction as the first matt emulsion coat using a good quality brush, ensure a smooth even film is produced
  • Allow the crackle base coat to dry for a minimum of 2 hours prior to applying the second coat of matt emulsion which must be applied at right angles to the crackle base coat
  • It is advisable to thin the second coat of matt emulsion with up to 10% of water to produce a free flowing paint
  • Load the brush with the thinned vinyl matt and apply in one pass, overworking will impair the crackle effect
  • The thickness of the second coat of matt emulsion determines the size of the cracks 
  • Allow the matt emulsion to dry
  • Best results are obtained when the object being painted is lying flat when drying
  • The crackle effect must be protected with the Crackle Top Coat
