- Apply one coat of Dixie Belle Paint in the color of your choice. If natural wood is desired, apply one coat Clear Coat and let dry completely.
- Stir the 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. Let dry completely for 24 hours.
