I think ralphie should hav stuck to pants not paints. For the money I cant see anything but a wall I have to get this mess off of. Any one with experience with the crackle medium. My top coat paint was very thick like pudding. I don't think it should be. When using crackle should the top coat be as thin as the base so that you get a consistant effect. My cracks are'nt the same and a sponge look like Ralph says to use on the can looks like a sponged wall . When I used a roller the cracks appeared better but you get a line where the roller touches the surface you just painted. I don't like this at all . Any suggestions.
