AquaSize™

$10.03$266.98

AquaSize™ (formerly known as Old World Crackle Size™) is a glue-like material that is the first step in the AquaCrackle® system. This superlative two-part system is designed to offer consistent results and a variety of crack patterns using a few simple tools and techniques. The AquaCrackle® method allows the user to create the illusion of a weathered painted surface that has literally cracked away from its substrate due to years of age.

  • If larger cracks are required, apply double coats of AquaSize™, allowing each layer to dry to a firm tack. Then apply a thick, generous coat of the AquaCrackle® material.
  • Finer cracks are achieved by applying one thin coat of the crackle size and a lesser amount of AquaCrackle®.
  • Tack time for the size will depend upon the thickness of the layer, humidity and airflow.
  • To avoid sags and runs on vertical surfaces, apply two thin coats of AquaSize™.
  • Different tools will create different patterns. Brushing the AquaCrackle® in a directional pattern will create longer, narrow alligator cracks. Sponging or bagging the AquaCrackle® will create a random pattern
