Tint with Proceed Pigment [[Dispersions]]. Do not add more than 10% dispersion.  Always test tint ratio before use. Use of more than recommended percentage could alter application consistency and cracking pattern.

Proceed® Rough Cracking Texture is a single-step, trowelable rough texture that generates an organic, irregular cracking pattern. Please review the following link for the Technical Data Sheet

Characteristics

1 coat of Rough Cracking Texture over a blue base color
1 coat of Rough Irregular Texture


How durable is the Crackled surface?

The crackled surface is strong and durable in terms of surface wear, resistance to heat, cold and moisture. If the surface is glazed, the glaze layer is actually the most sensitive and may need a protective topcoat depending on where the painted surface is located.

A topcoat should be considered if using this material in a kitchen or bathroom.

Flame Spread Rating

Golden Artist Colors, Inc. has not performed testing to assign a rate of flame spread for Golden water-based acrylic paints and mediums. However, given their formulation, our water-based products would be expected to perform similarly to typical latex house paints in regard to their ability to support combustion.

What to Avoid

  • If applying the Rough Cracking Texture in thicknesses in excess of 75 mils (19 sq ft/gal coverage), do not use Cracking Size underneath it.
  • Do not thin or force dry.
  • CAUTION: Application over extremely absorbent surfaces will mute the cracking pattern and/or result in adhesion failure. See: Rough Cracking Texture, Surface and Underlayer Considerations
  • Always perform test applications when using Cracking Size over other brands of paint as loss of adhesion may result. Do not apply over semi-gloss or gloss sheens.
  • Don't allow your product to freeze.

Coverage

Apply at a coverage rate of 58 sq. ft/gallon (wet film of 25 mils) or less. Thin applications will generate a fine cracking pattern with fine fissures and small islands. As thickness increases, the cracking pattern becomes more pronounced with larger fissures and islands. For more pronounced cracking patterns, prep surface by priming with Proceed Low Absorbency Base Coat and apply one or more coats of Cracking Size.
