Montana CRACKLE 400ml

CRACKLE EFFECT for the special crackle-look (e.g. for a vintage or used-look). Prior coating of your object is necessary with colors of Montana GOLD (recommended) or Montana WHITE (the thicker the base coat the stronger the effect). Give at least 45min but not more than 24hours drying time to the base coat before applying CRACKLE effect (drying time might vary due to temperature, humidity and thickness of coating). Apply spray strokes from left to right in a crossing over motion (cross-coating) for best results. After extensively applying CRACKLE Effect to your primed area, the distressing (cracking) process will begin to occur. The CRACKLE spray is high-covering and can be top-coated when fully dry and cured (after 24h) with Montana GOLD, Montana BLACK, Montana WHITE, Montana ACRYLIC markers as well as customary acrylic paints. Pre Priming with Montana Styrofoam primer is required for application on polystyrene (make sure to seal the surface completely). Color shown on top or donut.
