crackle effect

Recommended Posts

I used Elmer's white glue, and it worked.  I thinned it a little with plain water, and the crackle pattern was smaller.

I too have the folkart crackle medium and really like the results I get. I have found that a thinner coat of the crackle medium followed with a slightly thicker coat of paint gives me the best results. I saw a youtube video where the author really applied the crackle medium in a thick coat, followed with a thick coat of paint. In my findings, I had trouble with the "excess" paint and medium shifting on my lure.

The trick is to brush it on even. And I throw the paint on it right away. But you can try letting it dry before applying paint. Maybe it will work for you.
