Crackled finishes

These cracks here, although appear random, are much harder to achieve. This was hand rolled and applied very carefully to the surface. After which it was glazed to back fill the cracks
These cabinets were sprayed with two or three coats using a two step crackled process. After which two coats of French red were spayed and lightly glazed to bring out some of the details.
This is a beautiful effect.
This effect was achieved by spraying the two part crackle through an HPLV sprayer. The second part of the process, the black crackle, was watered down enough to get it through the sprayer. A 1.5 mm or 3.0 mm needle was used due to the thickness of the material. Only a single coat was used here resulting in smaller hairline cracks
