Crème Activator™


Creme Activator™ is a product that was designed to work between separate layers of Faux Effects™ SetCoat™. The Creme Activator™ material creates a poor bonding layer, allowing the artist to remove the upper layer of SetCoat™ in decorative patches thus exposing the first or background color layer of SetCoat™. The decorative result is a chipped or worn off Old World paint look.
