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

This product is easy to apply with a wide pallet or putty knife. It dries relatively quickly, usually over night. When you are trying to control the size and amount of crackling, it can be difficult to regulate.

Love this stuff. It's the only crackle material that I use after buying many others. None compare.

Just started experimenting with crackle and I love this stuff! Will be ordering a bunch more after writing this review.
