Pentart Fineline Crackle Varnish Set gives your project surfaces the effect of beautiful old, crackled porcelain. This product consists of 2 components in each set which are numbered Component 1 and Component 2. Component 2 is solvent-based. Each set comes with an instructional leaflet.

How to apply Pentart Fineline Crackle Varnish: 

  • Apply Component 1 onto your project surface with a soft brush. Allow to completely dry. 
  • Apply Component 2 using a soft brush.  Allow to dry for several hours to a full day or overnight. The time it takes to crackle depends on environmental conditions such as humidity and temperature. Place your project near a warm stove or use a blow dryer or heat gun to help speed up the crackle effect. Don't hold a heat gun or hot dryer too close to your project. The heat can melt and burn your materials.
  • After Component 2 is completely dry and you have your crackle effect, apply antiquing mediums, pigment pastes or other mediums with a contrasting color to highlight your crackles. You can use metallic pigments, like gold, or any color, too! 
  • NOTE: A glossy finish varnish is recommended due to the glossy-like shine that Component 2 of the Fineline Crackle renders. If a matte varnish is used, the matte varnish will dull the finish and may not render a desired appearance.
