This is perfect for that Cracked, Aged Effect!

Apply one coat of desired Dixie Belle Paint color under the crackle.  If natural wood is desired, apply 1 coat Clear Coat and let dry.

Stir Dixie Belle Crackle and apply.  Do not thin the crackle medium.

The thicker the application the larger the cracks.  Use a cross-hatch brush stroke to create erratic and wide cracks.

Do not back brush; this will disturb the cracking process.  Allow crackle to dry completely anywhere from 30 minutes to overnight.

Apply a top coat of any Dixie Belle Paint color.  The cracking process begins as the paint dries.

Let dry completely for 24 hours. Enjoy!

Perfect crackled finish. I will definitely be using this Crackle on other projects. I used another lumber store brand, and it was a disaster. Got some Dixie Belle paint and refinished it—Dixie Belle Paint saved the piece!

Cracks so easy!

I have used complicated crackles in the past but this is so easy. Paint your first color and let it dry. Then paint with crackle and let it dry. Finally, paint with your second contrasting color. Easy Peary crackling. I actually had a little door I painted with crackle one day and had to leave. I was worried it was too much time but rather, it crackled even better. Thick coat of crackle makes it work famously.
