Kroma Crackle

Kroma Crackle is a versatile, semi-opaque, acrylic gel medium that develops amazingly unique, organic textures as it dries. Developed in 2008 by a small Vancouver-based company, it has received astoundingly positive feedback from local Vancouver artists and now continues to grow in popularity among artists worldwide.

Suitable for professional-quality, fine art applications as well as craft projects, Kroma Crackle can be applied to both rigid and flexible surfaces including wood, cloth, canvas, and paper. Once dry and sealed, it is both durable and highly flexible.

Kroma Crackle is easy to use. Begin by covering your substrate with acrylic paint (or seal it with clear acrylic medium if you wish it to show between the cracks). Then simply apply Kroma Crackle — either tinted with acrylic color or straight from the tube. If left untinted, Kroma Crackle dries to a semi-opaque white that can be painted over once hardened.

You can achieve a limitless number of results by experimenting with application methods. Try manipulating the direction, thickness, and flow of the medium to influence the movement and spacing of the cracks.

Kroma Crackle is made by hand in small batches in the Kroma Industries workshop on Granville Island in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
