Looking for a unique way to add some character to your mixed media art projects? Check out Classic Crackle Varnish by Pentart. Follow the instructions using this two-part process to create an aged, crackled surface on your artwork that is truly one-of-a-kind.

Not only does it give your artwork a cool, antique look, but it's also water based so it's easy to use. Simply apply according to the instructions and then highlight the crackles with either antique pastes or pigment pastes. You can even use contrasting colors to really make them pop.

 Watch this video for instructions for use (note: the instructions for "Random Crackle Varnish" and "Classic Crackle Varnish" are the same).

Instructions for Use:

1. Apply component 1 in an even layer over your project and let it dry completely.

2. After component 1 is completely dry, apply component 2.

3. Highlight the cracks with antique paste, colored waxes, patinas, pigment powders or glazes. 

The depth and the network of the cracks depends on the thickness of the layer and on the technique of the application. The layer will dry transparent and waterproof.

About Us


 Hi! My name is Lori and I am Milton's Daughter. Milton's Daughter is yet another reinvention of myself, born of the desire to do what gives me joy. I have always had a passion for creative endeavors, having spent well over twenty years in the music industry as a producer for broadcast advertising music. After leaving that industry several years ago, I found myself taking jobs that paid the bills but did not feed my creative soul. I believe you have to love what you do and do what you love---and so the idea of "Milton's Daughter" came to be.

Having the opportunity to share my love of crafting and furniture painting is a gift; I hope that I can inspire others to reach outside of their comfort zone to discover their inner creative being.

When not painting or teaching, you can find me on the streets of Brooklyn or on the boardwalk in Rockaway Beach with my Wheaten Terrier, Gracie--my favorite painting partner and most adoring critic.
