To thin colours, use the Vitrea 160 thinner. Gloss and frosted medium are used to lighten the colours without changing their technical characteristics ; iridescent medium, when mixed with colours, produces iridescent colours. To obtain a crackle finish, first apply the crackling medium step 1, followed by the step 2 and then paint over with colour.  
Before painting with Vitrea 160, simply degrease with alcohol or soapy water. Allow to air dry for 24 hours, then bake in an ordinary domestic oven. Place the decorated object in a cold oven. Once the temperature has reached 160°C (325°F), allow to bake for 40 minutes. After baking, colours are dishwasher safe and resistant to detergents and common solvents.  Only the areas not intended to be put in contact with food must be decorated.
