One Step Crackle provides an aged or modern crackled effect in one easy step. It is easier to use and less expensive than other two-step crackle products. You can antique with One Step for an old world effect or colour wash with it for a newer, trendier look. One Step's crackle effect can be controlled by the thickness of application.
- Do not overwork. Apply a generous coat and leave it alone to self-level and crackle.
- Apply over a painted or sealed surface.
- To speed up dry time, use a hair dryer on the low setting and hold three feet away from the surface to prevent 'wrinkles' in the finish. Note that cracks will be smaller when dried this way.
- Thin application will produce small crackled effects and a thick application will produce large fissure-like cracks.
