Tinted Transparent Cracking Glaze samples applied over Crackle Size and some without Crackle Size beneath them. Some samples have had a glaze applied over the top.

Proceed® Transparent Cracking Glaze is a single-step clear cracking glaze that generates a transparent porcelain crackle patina. Please review the following link for the technical data shee

Characteristics

A thin, smooth, transparent cracking glaze that creates a glossy surface with an aged porcelain crackle pattern.*Creates a craqueleure or porcelain look.

Application

To create the best adhesion and the most interesting crackle pattern use Proceed Low Absorbency base paint as primer and paint beneath our Crackle System.

Can be applied by:

  1. Rolling: Do not roll aggressively, foam will occur that will dry in the finish. Experiment with different sleeves. We find that the Wooster® Polar Bear roller sleeve works really well, (it must be special ordered at a paint store that carries Wooster brand products). Transparent Cracking Glaze must be applied at a minimum thickness to create a visible crackle effect. A "white" translucent/opaque layer should be visible while wet or enough material may not have been applied. It will dry clear. If too much has been applied, Transparent Cracking Glaze will sag immediately. It will level and it can be "feathered" or smoothed out with a light hand and a brush or trowel.
  2. Brushing: Transparent Cracking Glaze must be applied at a minimum thickness to create a visible crackle effect. A "white" translucent/opaque layer should be visible while wet or enough material may not have been applied. It will dry clear. Any brush will work. If too much has been applied, Transparent Cracking Glaze will sag immediately. It will level and it can be "feathered" or smoothed out with a light hand and a brush or trowel.
  3. Troweling: Transparent Cracking Glaze is thick enough to trowel or blade on carefully. If too much has been applied, Transparent Cracking Glaze will sag immediately. It will level and it can be "feathered" or smoothed out with a light hand and a brush or trowel.

Tips and tricks

Each method should be practiced before attempting on a job site.

What to Avoid

Milkiness in dried Transparent Cracking Glaze caused by applying with a water dampened brush
  • Do not thin, force dry or apply multiple applications of Transparent Cracking Glaze.
  • Do not apply over flat sheen or very absorbent surfaces, cupping will occur to individual "platelets" and may cause loss of adhesion.
  • Milkiness may occur depending on the thickness of the application. It can disappear once overglazed, tinting the material will also hide the milkiness of a thicker application.


*Note: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.
