Proceed® Cracking Textures are reliable, single-step, trowelable textures that produce a range of cracking patterns and surface textures. These materials do not require a size, and may be applied directly over surfaces base painted with an eggshell to semi-gloss sheen. However, an optional size is available that further enhances the cracking effect. Proceed® Cracking Textures are intermixable and are compatible with most waterborne products. Test mixes and sample boards should always be employed to ensure compatibility, level of cracking and adhesion performance.

General Information - Read this First

  • Do not Force Dry - it will crack but it won't create a really beautiful crackle pattern.
  • For best adhesion, use Proceed Low Absorbency Base Paint under the Proceed Crackle products.
  • A solid surface, meaning a surface that is strong enough to handle the force of the drying crackle, is required before considering to apply any of the Proceed Crackle products. See Crackle Surface Preparation and Protection
  • ALWAYS make a control sample to check for unexpected interactions between cracking textures and size and products made by other manufacturers. We recommend using thin (1/4”) sheetrock for control samples as it best duplicates the surface conditions encountered on the job.
