Just had to share this very beautiful vanity we recently painted in a crackle effect! We absolutely love how she turned out! We definitely were experimenting this new technique & so glad we did because she is absolutely stunning!
This was a 3-step process & really easy to transform this vintage beaut into a cottage chic stunner achieved using a crackle application and paint from Country Chic Paint.
To start we used Modern Masters Decorative Painter’s Crackle for Latex Paint. The recommend this product to be applied between two paints of paint however we were looking for a crackle on wood effect so we simply applied the product directly onto the vanity.
Hence after ur first coat of latex paint (or in our case, layer of poly’ed wood) u apply a coat of this crackle, wait until dry, typically an hour. Finish by applying the coat of paint to expose crackle effect finish & walla!!!!
Let completely dry and seal by applying ur finish coat. We applied a clear poly to protect the piece! Now while we circumvented much of the application process the step by step directions can be found on the back of the bottle. When in doubt, experiment on a small piece of wood for trial & error ;-).
