Best crackle medium?

Lia_SC

I'm wondering what kind/brand is best? I have 2 or 3 in my paint box but haven't used them in a long time. As I recall, they weren't all that great. And I want something that works without paint so I can get a crackle finish over paper...

It's been a while since I used this.......but a while back I saw some samples of a product called fragile crackle. Point being the cracks are small and "old" looking. The antique glaze over the cracks set it off.

Lia, I use Delta two step Fine Crackle Finish and it works great.

I use the Delta as well. Brush it over, it cracks like china on the surface, then rub something in to the cracks to make them show.
