Add a rustic flair to your furniture with our easy-to-use Crackle Medium. The crackled finish is perfect for those that want to mimic the look of authentically aged paint, or create a unique, two-toned, textured appearance. One of our favorite color combinations with Crackle Medium is Bliss with a top coat of Simplicity.

The options with this product are endless -- experiment with different finishes by pairing the Crackle Medium with our Metallic Creams, or use our Beeswax Distressing Bar and the resist distressing method to layer your project with different paint colors to create a multi-toned, shabby chic effect. Crackle Medium can also be applied to raw wood to allow the beauty of the natural wood to peak through your paint.

When you’re ready to seal your piece, check out one of our basic protection sealants such as Wax or Hemp Oil for light protection. If you’d like to add more moderate protection, try Clear Coat or use Tough Coat on projects that require maximum protection such as kitchen cabinets or outdoor furniture.

Crackle Medium Product Features:

  • Creates an authentic-looking aged crackle effect
  • Water-based
  • Easy-to-use
  • Ultra low VOC; contains NO harsh chemical additives such as phthalates, formaldehyde, heavy metals, or solvents

Great

This was a cool product! I love how it turned out. It was my first time using it so I was not experienced. I found for me I needed to be more consistent with how much I put on. My project did better with a thicker coat. It really gave it a distressed aged look. You could use this for many things!!

Crackle fun

I had way more fun with this crackle medium than I should have! The effect was subtle when I used two similar colors of paint. Next time, I will use very different colors for a more drastic effect.

Crackle Goodness

I used the Country Chic Crackle Medium to add some texture and interest to my painted coffee table. It was super easy to use and I’m incredibly impressed with the final result. So much fun watching it crackle in front of your eyes!

Crackle Medium ROCKS

Over the years I’ve used lots of different crackle mediums, some were good, some were not so good and some just didn’t do well at all. Your crackle medium is my new favorite because it is very straight forward and you can watch the magic happen. This time I used the sample on a picture frame and I love it. My only wish is that you were closer because it takes over a week to receive your products. I must say though it was worth the wait and I’ll just have to plan my projects better in the future!
