One Step Crackle provides an aged, crackled effect in one easy step. It’s easier to use and less expensive than two-step crackles.

One Step Crackle dries clear. It can also be antiqued for old world effect or color washed for newer, trendier look.

The crackle effect can be controlled by application. Thin applications will produce small crackled effects. Thick applications will produce large crackled effects.

One Step Crackle can be applied to wood, plaster, tin, resin, ceramic bisque, papier machè, terra cotta, plastic, glass, and metal. It’s nontoxic and cleans up with soap and water.

Product Questions and Answers

Can this product be high fired?

- Asked by Denise on 18-Jul-13

This product is just a decorative paint-on product and not meant to be fired at all.

- Answered by MisterArt on 18-Jul-13

I put a coat of One Step Crackle on and it didn't make any cracks. Can I put another coat on top of this coat?

- Asked by Nholgers on 16-May-13

If applied with a brush back and forth too much, or trying to brush it out smoothly like you would a varnish, it may not crackle at all. Be sure to apply this over a painted or sealed surface. Raw, unfinished, or surfaces that are not completely sealed absorb part of the product resulting in little or no crackle. I would expect the same over a previously-laid layer of One Step Crackle.

May I use this on canvas?

- Asked by Joanne on 02-Mar-13

The one Step Crackle is not recommended for use on canvas or fabric.

- Answered by MisterArt on 07-Mar-13

Can you apply a glaze, varnish, clear spray paint, etc. over a crackled surface, or will that cause it to lose the crackle?

- Asked by Kristy on 22-Oct-12

Adding a varnish should not change the crackle affect. However, we recommend using one that is made by the same manufacturer.

I LOVE this product and am on my way to purchase more!! This is NOT like the old version of crackle where you have to paint over it to get the effect. You just paint on the clear crackle and wait for it to dry(I even cheated and used a heat gun to speed ) then watch the crackles appear! I add a watered down brown acrylic paint over the top and wipe it off to highlight the crackles and age the project. Its amazing you MUST buy this!!(buy 2 its sooo addicting!)
Rated by: Merrill M. in St Augustine, FL
This is a good crackle effect for small and intimate projects like jewelry pieces or boxes. But as the size of your project goes up, this crackle doesn't allow the crackle size to enlarge, also time expensive as you have to wait for complete drying time to achieve good effects, but it is nice to have choices in the effects you are trying to produce.
