Acrylic Crackle Glaze

For stunning cracked paint effects

Designed for use with emulsion or latex paint, this acrylic medium produces consistent cracking for dramatic effect.

Apply your Polyvine Crackle Glaze between two layers of emulsion base coat. This will cause the top layer to crack, revealing the colour of the base coat.

Use a good quality brush to avoid brush marks, and allow the base coat to dry thoroughly before layering. Check out our how-to video for hints, tips and inspiration.
