GOLDEN Crackle Paste is a thick, opaque cracking material designed to develop deep fissure-like cracks as it cures. Use on inflexible substrates. The size and extent of the crackle pattern is dependent on many factors, including the thickness of application and the environmental conditions (temperature, relative humidity and air flow) during drying. Suitable base coats for fine art include gesso, gel mediums, and acrylic paints. House paint or primer are suitable bases for decorative uses.
GOLDEN Pastes are tools that artists can use to achieve a variety of effects and expressions. Pastes used in conjunction with acrylic colors broaden working properties and expand creative possibilities.
Pastes differ from most gels in that they are opaque and may contain Marble Dust, Diatomaceous Earth, fibers, clays or other fillers resulting in a white or clay-tone finish with a variety of textures and properties. Pastes can also be used to create textured foundations for painting.
