Dixie Belle’s Crackle application is perfect for that Cracked, Aged Effect! Just like how the blazing Southern Sun can crackle lines in the desert sands....Dixie Belle Crackle will create lines of crackle in anything you want to look aged.
Apply one coat of Dixie Belle Chalk Mineral Paint of any color. (This will be the color of the cracks), to a properly cleaned surface. (Please clean with our Dixie Belle White Lightning!) If natural wood is desired, apply 1 coat Clear Coat and let dry completely. Stir Dixie Belle Crackle and apply. Do not thin the crackle medium. The thicker the application the larger the cracks. Use a cross-hatch brush stroke to create erratic and wide cracks. Do not back brush; this will disturb the cracking process. Allow crackle to dry completely anywhere from 30 minutes to overnight. Apply a top coat of any Dixie Belle Paint color. The cracking process begins as the paint dries.
You won't be disappointed with the quality of the product and the commitment to bringing you the best chalk mineral paint. Dixie Belle's Chalk Mineral Paints do not require wax or any type of sealant. They have an beautiful finish just the way it dries. If you take our finishing pads and give a quick buff....the finish will be as smooth as butter. No chalky feel like other chalk paints can leave.
