To create an aged, cracked paint effect all you have to do is apply Rust-Oleum Crackle two component system in conjunction with any regular matt emulsion paint. It produces a fantastic, distressed look that adds interest to any furniture item or household decoration.
The crackle base coat is applied between two contrasting coloured layers of vinyl matt emulsion. The protective crackle top coat is then applied over the crackled surface created with the base coat.
We chose to update these bedside drawers using the Crackle base sandwiched between a dark brown and an ivory matt emulsion – and you have to admit that the outcome is stunning.
But it doesn’t have to stop there! Why not try this out yourself and find new and quirky items to give an antique feel to, from bed frames to display cabinets, and hand-carved chairs to vanity tables. Experiment with different coloured emulsion paint to create a unique result each time.
The proof is in the pudding – Rust-Oleum Crackle is the perfect solution to easily distressing furniture without any of the hassle.
