Tips for working with Crackle Paste:
The heavier the coat, the larger the cracks. Very heavy coats are not recommended for paper projects as the paper may crumple.
For best results allow the crackle paste to dry naturally. This takes anywhere from 1-5 hours depending on weather and climate conditions. You can speed up drying with a heat tool, but the effect will not be as defined compared to drying naturally.
On larger surfaces, with heavy texture, it is recommended to apply a coat of Art Basics Soft Gel after it is completely dry to avoid the big crackle flakes from falling off.
