Cracking Size: When Size meets Texture and Leaf


 
Proceed Cracking Size is a water-based, clear medium that produces a tacky surface once dried, usually in about one hour. It seals the surface off underneath the “sized” application to an extent. 
 
When Proceed crackle textures or Transparent Cracking Glaze are applied over the Cracking Size, they are able to move easier, producing larger gaps and crackle patterns. 
 
Check out this link for further explanation of how a sized application is influenced by the sheen of the base paint beneath and how it affects the Rough Cracking Texture on top. The image at this link displays this phenomenon:

The Proceed crackle products will crack leaf: gold, aluminum, and composition. Keep in mind that the composition will tarnish due to the water content in the textures. This has been a beautiful and interesting discovery, see the image located in the At Home with Golden section of this newsletter! 
 
We will continue to test and post our findings on the Proceed Wiki. 
 
Please note that we strongly recommend testing be done until a person is comfortable with the results. Read the articles, watch the videos available and always feel free to call the GOLDEN Technical Support Services team at 800-959-6543 with your questions!
 
Email Lori Wilson with any further questions!.
