Powertex 3d flex. Anyone tried it?

Hi
Has anyone tried Powertex 3D flex? It looks like it can be used in paintings to create some really amazing crackle and texture effects. Much denser than crackle paste. I would love to try it but i am having trouble finding tutorials of how to use it that are in English. There are some videos on youtube but once again, they are not in English. I can order it and have it shipped to the US but i am unsure how to apply it and get the effects i am seeing in pictures. The website has some instructions but they are kind of vague

Thanks!

It looks like there is a US distributor in Florida that offers workshops and they have some pdf instructions on their site. If they want people to use their products, they'll likely provide information via email or over the phone.

It looks like it might be similar to Paverpol and even Foam Coat, but I haven't seen anyone provide any tutorials on how to create cracked and crackle effects with these.

If you try it, please share. I may be interested for future projects.
Cheers,

Yeah I saw the distributor site. That's probably where I will order it from. It looks like you have to buy the liquid and then the powder and depending on how thick or thin you mix it you can get different crack effects then there is something with spraying it with something called bister? I would love a video in English. I might just order some and play around with it. The stuff I see online where people used it looks amazing. I'll let you know if I give it a try

I'd almost bet the powder is calcium carbonate, the chalk mineral used in gessoes.
