If you are looking for some great products to create a cracked finish, or aged finish to your art or craft project, then Delta Ceramcoat Fine Crackle Finish has a great 2 step procedure to give you the crackle effect you are looking for.
This two step finish, works perfectly every time, especially if you also use the delta ceramcoat acrylic paints for the base coat.
Basically, you paint your base coat, or painting that you want to give a aged cracked finish to. Once dry, you take your bottle of STEP 1 Delta finish, and you put one coat over your dried painting, it goes on clear. The thicker the coat you put on, the wider the cracks will be. So, if you are looking for a very fine crackle antique finish, then you only need a thin coat of STEP 1.
Let dry for 20 minutes, and then coat with STEP 2 bottle of Delta crackle finish, and let it dry overnight. Cracks will form while the product is drying. It will look clear over your painting or painted surface.
Then you can antique your painting with delta antiquing gel, or watered down delta acrylic paint works well too, especially in the rustic tones, and the antique or color will sit in the fine cracks that the delta crackle finish product will produce. This is a great way to give "age' to a project. Carefully wipe off any excess gel or paint, and you have your aged project.
Let this dry for a good day, and the finish with a coat of Delta varnish to protect your project, especially if it is something useable, such as a tray, that you will want to wipe clean. You should use at least 2 coats for added protection. You can't go wrong using the Delta Ceramcoat Paint lines and products. They work well together.
I found this product, to work really well over any projects, even decoupage. You can make any painting or wood surface look aged with this effect. You can use some antiquing gel over the project and then wipe it off and the color will sit in the cracks. Try not to use too much of this, you just want to give it an aged look, but this product Two Step program works every time. You can depend on this product to give you that aged crackled look.
