    Do you know of any other brands of matte crackle paint other than the Ranger Distress crackle paint? I find it too thick to put on intricate chipboard. I love how you can cover fine details with so many brands of glossy crackle paint but I prefer the white matte look. Any suggestions?

    OK – so I found out that Martha Stewart makes some… crossing my fingers that my Michael's carries it!

      I saw it yesterday at my Micheal's. It wasn't with the scrapbooking stuff, it was in the craft isle.

          Yeah, let us know! I don't have patience for crackle…takes wayyyyy to long to dry!

            I have one that is quick drying. Can't remember the brand and I am at work right now.

            Will try to go shop next week – too busy with kiddo birthdays right now… will keep you posted!

            Don't waste your money on the Martha one… stick with Ranger. Good think I got it at 50% off – it sucks!

              Vicky, thanks so much for the heads up. I do hate it when you spend all that money and it's a major fail.

                OMG… look at this EASY and CHEAP crackle method I found for a great matte look. This link was posted in a thread for a bad review of the Martha product, LOL http://makethebestofthings.blogspot.ca/2010/05/crackle-finish-with-elmers-glue.html

                  This does good, Miranda had a video tutorial on this method. Was pretty much no fail method. Or if you enter elmers glue crackle on you tube, there are several videos.

                    Oh yeah…I saw these…I wonder how well they really work.

                    Wonder if it works with other glue. Must try it. I have not had much success with the ranger crackle paint or the crackle medium (can't remember what brand). And it takes sooooo long

                      I does work. I used the technique on a card.
                      BUT it's not the same results as the Ranger.
