The two-step craquelure SaMi-ART consists of two compositions: putinyouth varnish - water based and krakelyurnogo varnish - water-based (analogue MAIMERI art.753-754)
Before work this krakelyurnogo pair should be well primed porous surfaces with acrylic paint.
The first step is applied by marconista evenly across the surface and left to dry for 20-30 minutes (composition completely dries, it remains sticky).
Apply 2 step krakelyurnogo varnish. Definitely you must ensure that the second step covered the first step, otherwise the grout will remain stain. Leave to dry until cracks.
RUB it into the cracks dry grated pastels, dry pearl, purpurin, oil paint, bitumen varnish or patina, bitumen, dry - better to leave for a few hours. Then gently wash off with room temperature water to the top step of the varnish, without touching the surface with your hands. The stream of water begins to wash away the top layer of varnish, exposing the bottom layer with a grid of beautiful colored cracks-craquelure.
The secret is that the pigment has penetrated through the cracks of the top layer of varnish (krakelyurnogo) and stuck to the bottom layer of varnish (Parinirvana).
After drying, the surface air (not a towel!) we have a sticky bottom layer of varnish, which urgently need to fix, because while on the decorated surfaces makes it easy to stay fingerprints, lint, etc.
To protect the surface apply several coats of any acrylic lacquer.
For those who order by mail! The water-based materials are afraid of sub-zero temperatures!
How to keep
After work all tools and brushes immediately wash with warm water with detergent.
