Rough Cracking Texture in the hands of "Crackle Man" - David Lusk


 
This month we feature the work of David Lusk. David is an interior designer, decorative painter, and is busy keeping multiple crews working in Houston, TX. Check out his technique and advice he shares with us on Rough Cracking Texture… 
 
David shared: “In my opinion, the Rough Cracking Texture gives a finish that has a stone look and feel. This material can be applied over just about any surface. Troweling the texture on tightly, then glazing over the surface achieves an Olde World finish. This product is definitely one of my favorites. When mixing together the Rough and Smooth Cracking Textures, you get a tough, fluffy and crumbling crackled effect.” 
 
The technique featured at the right was created by: 
1. Applying a coat of Proceed Crackle Size over Low Absorbency Base Paint. 
2. Mixing equal parts Smooth Cracking Texture with Rough Cracking Texture. 
3. Troweling a thin coat of the mixture over the Crackle Size and allow to dry for 24 hours. 
4. Glazing over the finish. 
 
David Lusk, owner of Ultimate Artworks based in Houston, TX provided the finish featured here using Rough Cracking Texture. Visit the “where to learn” section of the Proceed website to learn more about his upcoming classes.
