Simply start with the Crackle Medium…
Crackling using the serviette technique
Beautiful crackles can be achieved using Marabu crackle medium, clear.
1. Prime with Marabu Decormatt or Decorlack; dry with a hair dryer.
2. Apply the medium evenly; dry with a hair dryer.
3. Apply Decormatt or Decorlack very quickly; the crackle effect will occur immediately. Allow to dry for at least 1 hour.
4. Continue with the serviette technique.
Hints & Tips:
– The thicker the uppermost layer, the more distinctive the crackles will be; for fine crackles the paint has to be applied in thin layers.
– The character of the crackle effect can be influenced by the direction the uppermost layer of the paint is spread: straight spreading in one direction results in vertical or horizontal crackles; a cloud-like effect is achieved by circular paint applications. Simply experiment!
– If the crackles appear too large, the crackle medium and the corresponding paint colour can be re-applied. The crackles should be much finer.
– Crackle effect can be obtained without a primer: simply start with the crackle medium…
– Only apply the uppermost layer of paint once – painting over this while it is still wet will destroy the crackle effect.
Influencing the crackle character
When working with the Marabu Crackle Medium, the character of the crackle effect can be influenced by the application direction of the top layer of paint. Vertical brush strokes produce more vertical and horizontal cracks; circular brush strokes result in cloud-like effects. Just try it!
Fine to large cracks in the Crackle Medium
The thicker the top coat, the larger the cracks. Apply a thin coat of paint to achieve fine cracks.
Correcting oversized cracks
If any cracks are too big, they can be treated with another layer of Crackle Medium and the respective paint to achieve smaller cracks.
