Have you ever applied Crackle to a piece and found that it didn't crackle very evenly? Maybe this will help
Be sure that you apply the crackle with a soft brush and use strokes that only go one direction, don't apply too thickly or it will run and drip. I like to paint mine in downward strokes so that if I get any unwanted runs or drips, they will be doing the same direction as my strokes as gravity will pull them downward. Try to watch for drips and smooth them out before they dry. If you can, lay your piece flat to keep it from dripping and running.
Let this dry and then apply your top coat in the SAME direction. Be sure that you apply 1 solid coat of color also going in the same direction, and do not over lap strokes once the paint has dried, as this will fill in the crackling results. If you have a large area, you will need to work pretty quickly to get an even coverage that does not looked striped from your brushstrokes. Good Luck!
