Re: glue crackle

I like the texture in the white glue test. It looks like an old fence post. Did you put the paint on straight down/up or twist it to make it twirl like wood grain?

Re: glue crackle

The brush stroke will, to a degree, determine the "grain" of the crackle.

Re: glue crackle

You inspired me to open my jar of crackle paste and try wet-on-wet. I mixed up crackle paste, glazing medium and a little naphthol red fluid and smeared it on a gessoed board with a knife. I then painted on some fluid interference blue while the first layer was still wet. Still drying, but so far not nearly as exciting as your glue effect (after an hour of drying time). I tried different thicknesses of the crackle paste layer and even did a on canvas mixing of the two layers for part of the experiment for completeness.

Re: glue crackle

Don't distress yet, crackle paste can take days to show signs of cracking.

Re: glue crackle

Please try it again, I think I have it fixed. Keep your fingers crossed.

Re: glue crackle

Unless sealed on the surface, it can separate from the surface. At least that is my experience. Not one of my favorite products.
