Helpful Hints:
Let Perfect Crackle dry naturally; do not force dry. This may take more than 24 hours. Drying time will vary, depending on thickness of application and humidity.
Seal with Americana clear varnish or sealer for added protection.
For tiny cracks, apply light, even coats of both steps. Do not overwork either Step 1 or Step 2. Too many brush strokes will result in no cracking. Use a sponge brush for more consistent coating.
For large cracks, apply 2 to 3 heavy coats of Step 1. When Step 1 is completely dry (overnight or longer if required), apply one coat of Step 2, using a soft brush or sponge brush to layer.
Practice on a small sample piece to determine the preferred crackle effect and appearance.
