  • Porcelain Crackle Size™ may be thinned with water up to 20% for spray applications.
  • Do not apply product in direct sunlight.
  • Setting time for Porcelain Crackle Size depends on the thickness of the layer, humidity and airflow.
  • To avoid sags and runs on vertical surfaces, apply two thinner coats of Porcelain Crackle Size™.
  • Always make a sample to ensure the desired results.
  • Seal the work surface by applying 2 coats of SetCoat® Clear. Allow the first coat to dry a minimum of 4 hours before applying the second coat; let the second coat dry a minimum of 24 hours.
  • Apply 2 even coat of Porcelain Crackle Size™ to the areas to be cracked.
  • Allow the size to dry approximately 15 to 45 minutes until tacky between coats, about the consistency of flypaper. Porcelain Crackle Size™ will first appear clear upon application, then turn cloudy, and return back to a clear state. At this point, the Porcelain Crackle material can be applied.

  • Let dry thoroughly. Drying time depends on climate conditions.
  • Apply a coat of ColorSeal™ to protect the crackle especially if a color glaze will be applied over the crackle.
  • For a final protective clear coat apply an additional coat of ColorSeal™ over any glaze work.
  • Additional clear coats of AquaGard™ or AquaThane™ may also be applied as needed when extra durability is needed.
