Mixing with colours: May be tinted 5-10% with colour prior to applying. The percentage depends on the colour’s acrylic and ingredient content. The higher the quantity the more diminished the crackle effects. (Artist and Professional grade paints will be formulated with more acrylic) SEE IMAGES BELOW
Finishing: If applied very thick, areas may required extra support with a protective finishing medium such as Tri-Art’s Final Finish or Polymer Medium. Thinner applications will not require additional adhesion support.
Crackle Medium dries white with a slight tooth making additional layers easy to apply and adhere to it surface. Adding colour may alter the finished sheen.
Surfaces may be enhanced once dry with paint or other media and techniques such as glazing, washes, dry brush, marker, pastel, graphite etc.
Always test your methods and materials prior to applying to a final piece of artwork to ensure desired effects.
