Craqueleur by Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

Product Description
$ 36.00
Maximum quantity available reached.

Annie Sloan Craqueleur is a 2-part, water-based crackle finish system for use over painted, decoupaged, and stenciled surfaces. Step 1 and Step 2 combine to create an irregular fine crackle pattern that simulates the look of aged varnish.

Please note: You need both Step 1 and 2 to achieve this look so we recommend purchasing the complete set. We do however, sell each step separately as well. This allows you to replenish one or the other as you use them to achieve different crackle effects. You must purchase and use both steps for a complete craqueleur finish.

Technical Information

Each jar is 120ml / 4.22oz.

Coverage is approximately 20 sq/f for step 1 and step 2 is usually a little less since that is dependent on how thickly you apply it.

Application Tips

Annie Sloan’s unique Craqueleur is a two-part application that gives an authentic cracked varnish finish ⎯ just like on an Old Master painting! Step 1 is the base. With Step 2 you can control the size of the cracks ⎯ the thinner you apply it, the smaller the cracks. If you like, you can then highlight the cracks with Dark Chalk Paint® Wax. 

* Apply 1 or 2 coats of Craqueleur Step 1 to your painted surface by brushing on in random directions. 2 coats will yield larger cracks. Allow to dry between EACH coat.

* Brush on a coat of Craqueleur Step 2 in any direction. A thicker coat will again yield larger cracks, but take care not to apply too thickly. Some let step 2 dry for about 10 or 15 minutes, then finish with a hair dryer on medium to high heat. 

If you have an issue with it not cracking, it may be because step 2 was too thin.

* Immediately apply heat with a hair dryer or by placing outside on a warm, sunny day. Cracks will appear almost instantly.

* Allow to dry.

* Further enhance the crackle finish by rubbing Annie Sloan Dark Wax into the cracks.

* Remove excess with a soft cloth. Apply additional coats of Annie Sloan Clear Wax to protect further. Buff when dry.
