I would NOT buy thius product again
I have read the reviews by other people about this crackle paste, and I am totally baffled that they loved it. It didn't work AT ALL for me. No matter what I did, as far as applications of paint and this product, it did NOT crackle at all for me. Please feel free to advise as I wish it had worked.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with this crackle paste. There are many factors that can influence the outcome, including thickness of application, the temperature and humidity when the product is drying, flexibility of the underlying surface, and any added paint or medium. For best results, work on a rigid substrate. Do not thin with water or use any additives that retard drying, and don't exceed the recommended constraints for added paint or medium (20% by weight, or 10% by volume). For further assistance using this or any product you purchase from us, we invite you to reach out to our Product Information Team. Product Specialists are available weekdays from 8am to 5:30pm CST at 1-800-933-2542 or firstname.lastname@example.org, and they're happy to help!
Very good, but...
It is very good. It does what it says, the cracks are nice and deep. The only problem is that I left it in the pot a whole month perfectly closed and it dried. I tried everything: mixing it with water, with acrylics. It did not work and I had to throw it away.
Did exactly what I expected the product to do!

Best of the Lot!
from New Haven, CT
I use a lot of crackle products on my mixed media work - the Golden Crackle Paste stands heads above all the others. You are able to control the amount of crackle by the depth by which you apply it to your substrate - not true of most of the other products.It's always my go-to-first brand!

Golden Crackle Paste
from Naples, FL
This is a great product for mixed media projects and paintings. It can be used to give your painting a classic antique look or just an interesting crackle texture. High flow, fluid or acrylic Inks can be mixed in with the paste to tint it or painted over it. I just love this Acrylic medium.
Gets the effect but experimentations are difficult
By Harambe Harrison
Product is good and does what it says. I was really hoping that it would make really large fissures that could give some of my paintings really deep texture. If thats what you want to get this product is not that. A thin layer, about the thickness of a piece of paper, makes a really nice small crackle effect. A layer with the thickness of thin magazine makes very nice cracks. Any thicker and the cracks seem to come up short, as if it dried completely before the cracks reached the surface. If you want even cracks, make sure u spread and pack the medium in tightly so there isnt any air gap. Overall its a good product but it has its limits.

I have found no better (or even comparable) crackle medium on the market. Even my non-artist husband is impressed with it, asking me if I could do that on furniture. This medium is also quite absorbent when dry, allowing colors to soak into it, much like the other absorbent mediums like fiber paste and coarse molding gel. The crackles this one produces makes it irreplaceable! :D
