Golden brand crackle paste is a thick white and opaque gel specially made to leave cracks on a surface as it dries. The size and depth of the cracks depend on numerous factors, including the thickness of the applied coat, the support and drying conditions. It has a consistency similar to cake icing, easily manipulated by a palette knife. Peaks will maintain their height and appearance as the surface remains absorbent. Colours can be mixed with the paste or applied directly on the crackled surface.
