Decorative Arts-Idea Decoupage

754 - Waterbased colourless cracking varnish

125 ml

If you have coated your creation with patina varnish, you can create a cracked effect quickly and easily using water-based cracking varnish. Use the same brush as you used to apply patina varnish to apply a coat of cracking varnish all over the object. The first cracks will form about half an hour later. If you want to burnish your creation to emphasise the cracks, pat liquid bitumen all over the decorated object with a clean cloth

First application: 100% Maimeri Puro colour: Maimeri Puro tints are highly concentrated so some colours appear very dark when used in their pure form.

Second application: 50% Maimeri Puro colour + 50% Colourless Medium, i.e. a neutral unpigmented paste. This medium is used for thinning the tints, enhancing the flow and emphasizing the depth of the thinned colour.

Third application: 10% Maimeri Puro colour + 90% Glazing Medium to emphasize the sheen of the tint and the different degree of opaqueness between the colours.

Fourth application: 50% Maimeri Puro colour + 50% Titanium White, to emphasize the undertone of the tint and highlight the concentration.
