Crackle Finish

Recommended Posts

There was a thread a while back on crackle finish and a few of you expressed interest in it. I have a project guitar that has my gears going and I'd like to "crackle" it. Is there any interest in the crackle finish here and any interest in a tutorial?

I can take pic's and write one up as I do it if you guys want one.

a crackle finish is achieved by putting a bottom layer on of primer. then a layer of whatever paint you want to show through. then you put a very thin coat of paint thinner on. and you wait for that to dry and you put another thick coat of paint on top. and that paint "cracks" and you put a clear over it and your done. It might be a little thick for a guitar. and the finish does chip easy.
