  • Drying Time: Drying time is dependent on temperature and humidity but should be around 1 hour-90mins
  • Coverage: This will be dependent on substrate & effect required but approximately 10-14m² per Litre
  • Thinners: Water
  • Equipment Cleaning: Water


First choose two complimenting or contrasting colours of water based emulsion, one as a base coat (the colour of the cracks) and one as a topcoat.

Apply the emulsion as normal with a good quality brush, shake the crackle glaze well and apply over the base emulsion. Once dry, apply the top coat of emulsion, being careful to brush in one direction only in singular strokes, over brushing will cause it to mix with the emulsion underneath and not work.

It may help to thin the top coat with a little water to make it easier to apply, it is also worth noting that the thicker the top coat, the bigger the cracks can be. It should begin cracking soon after you have applied it.
