Montana Cans CRACKLE EFFECT is a high pressure gloss paint coating, that is applied over other paints before they are completely dry to give it a crackle-look. Let the base coat dry at least 45 minutes but no more than 24 hours before applying the CRACKLE effect spray. After extensively and evenly applying CRACKLE EFFECT to your primed area, the distressing (cracking) process will begin to occur. For finest crackling results, apply to a completely dry base coat. CRACKLE EFFECT spray is high covering and can be top-coated when completely dry and cured. For best results, use with Montana Cans GOLD as the base coat.
