Create instant age and character with a crackle
paint finish. Start with a primed and lightly sanded tabletop, and apply the base color.
You’ll need to spray two coats of a flat paint, this is Labrador, and let that dry.
Next, apply a thick coat of crackle glaze and let that dry according to the manufacturers
directions. Now you can add the top coat is Lost Atlantis….and it’s important that
this is a matte or flat finish, other finishes like gloss or satin won’t react correctly
with the crackle. This top coat is the most important part of the process…so you may
want to try and experiment on a piece of scrap wood to get a feel for applying it, you don’t
want to overwork it or apply too thick – which can affect the results. As you’re
applying, you can actually see it starting to crackle and age…..and as the topcoat
dries it may continue to develop a bit more.
