How do I use the FolkArt Home Decor Crackle?
The FolkArt Home Decor Crackle is used to create crackled effects with the FolkArt Home Decor Chalk.
Directions: Basecoat surface with FolkArt Home Decor Chalk, allow to dry fully. Apply Crackle Medium evenly over surface using a paint brush, being careful not to over stroke. Allow to thoroughly dry. Apply contrasting top coat of FolkArt Home Decor Chalk in one even coat, being careful not to over stroke. As the topcoat dries, the cracking will occur. It is recommended to test this technique on a small sample surface first. Note topcoat must be applied for cracking to occur. Do not use in humid conditions. Clean up while wet with soap and water.

Over-stroking FolkArt Home Decor Crackle and topcoat may create very fine cracks or no cracks. For indoor use only.
