Crackle Touch

  • Gives an Antique Crackle Finish
  • Ideal for various decorative projects
  • Fast Drying


Crackle from Plasti-kote is a two-part system of a base coat and a top coat that uses two 'incompatible' paints to give objects an antique look. The depth and width of crackle can be influenced by building up several layers of the base-coat. The top-coat should be applied while base-coat is still tacky.

Application tips
How to

For interior and exterior use.

 

Use only in well ventilated areas. Ensure surface is clean and dry. Shake can well before use and between applications. Before applying spray on an inconspicuous area to ensure compatibility and suitability. Seal all porous surfaces prior to the application of the base coat with a Plasti-kote Super Primer.

  • For a light crackle effect - apply 2 light coats of base coat and then apply one even layer of top-coat.
  • For a medium crackle effect - apply 2 heay base coats and while still tacky, spray 2 to 3 even layers of top-coat.
  • For a large crackle effect - apply 2 heavy base coats and while still tacky, spray 3 to 4 even layers of top-coat.

Sit back and watch the exciting Crackle effect appear before your eyes!

Suitable for use on almost all surfaces, Crackle is ideal for minor interior decorative projects. To preserve and protect the finish, we recommend that Plasti-kote Super Clear Acrylic No. 1138 is applied once the Crackle finish is dry.
