Crackle paint how-to?

3 posts in this topic

Can someone explain the crackle painting process?

Trying to do a green-over-yellow crackle frog. I'd also like to have yellow side spots with black centers...

What materials & paints do I need? Any way to do this with Auto Air?



Thanks,

Hi
What you are looking for is a crackle medium. If you go to a crafts store and ask for this they should have a bottle. On the crackle medium package i t will have directions/tips. The link below gives a step by step process on furniture.

As the story goes, James Heddon attempted to speed up production by applying the colored paint over a semi-cured primered lure and then force dry the lure in a oven. Much to his surprise the short-cut produced the crackle effect.
