FAQs

After using Martha Stewart Crafts ® Fine Crackle Effect, can I apply a color glaze over it?
Yes, we recommend applying a contrasting color glaze to emphasize the cracks. Wait 24 hours before applying. Mix a color glaze by pouring desired amount of Martha Stewart Crafts Tintable Glaze Effect onto a palette. Squeeze a little paint separately onto palette. Using a palette knife, gradually mix paint into the glaze medium until desired color is achieved and fully incorporated.
