Gerstaecker Crackle Paste is a ready-to-use, fine, white, highly absorbent acrylic paste for crackle effects. It can be coloured with acrylic paint or painted over once dry.

Apply Gerstaecker Crackle Paste on its own or mixed with (max. 30%) acrylic paint with a spatula or broad brush on a grease-free surface. Ideal supports are solid and rigid materials such as wood, hardboard, or very tight canvas.

Gerstaecker Crackle Paste - the most important things at a glance:

  • Ready-to-use, fine, white, highly absorbent acrylic paste for crackle effects.
  • The drying time depends on the layer thickness and the amount of acrylic paint added.
  • The best results are achieved at temperatures around 18-25° C, with the drying process taking several hours.
  • Accelerated drying has a major influence on the crackle appearance.
  • For best results pre-treat supports with Gesso beforehand.
  • After drying, the paste can be painted over with acrylic paints or the cracks can be coloured.
  • An acrylic varnish can be applied to fix it.
  • Strongly absorbent. If necessary, absorbency can be reduced with an acrylic binder or acrylic painting medium.

In order to achieve ideal adhesion, it is advisable to prime the support with 1-2 layers of Gesso. If you want to design surfaces that dont have cracks everywhere, you can fill in these parts with light structure paste. The paste resembles the crackling paste in consistency and appearance, but does not crack. Gerstaecker Crackle Paste is sold in various sizes and is comprised of pure acrylate dispersion, fillers, additives, water.
