Apply to perfectly dry P.BO deco colours.  Dry to the touch in 1 hour. May be handled after 2 hours.

Crackled Effect

An easy way to get a spectacular "crackled" effect. Application tips:  Apply Crackled Effect over a layer of dry P.bo deco colour, from left to right. Allow to dry, and then apply a layer of a different P.bo deco colour over it (except for pearlescent colours). Cracks appear in 10 minutes.

Image Transfer

Apply three successive layers of the Image Transfer over the printed image, observing an exposure time of 30 minutes between each layer. Allow to dry for 2 hours. Soak a few minutes in warm water, and then pressing the image with your finger or using a damp sponge, rub gently to remove all paper, and leave only the image transferred to the varnish. The picture is now a transparent varnish. Allow to dry for 2 hours, and then cut more detailed if needed.  Glue the transferred pattern onto the surface by applying a layer of Image Transfer on the surface. Finish with a final layer of protection.

Crackling Kit

 

Apply a generous and uniform layer of Crackled Effect STEP 1.  Allow to dry for 2 hours, and then apply a uniform layer of Crackled Effect STEP 2. The cracks begin to appear in 15-20 min. They are small and subtle. The size of the cracks depends on the thickness of product used. 

To enhance the effect, add a soft patina to highlight the cracks:  Burnt Umber patina, if the general colour of the object is clear, Naples Yellow patina if the colour is dark. Allow to dry for 2 hours. 

Protect the cracks with a uniform layer of Crackled Effect STEP 1.  Allow to dry for 2 hours before handling.
