Cracked Patina recreates the warmth and charm that history lends to wooden furniture and the decorative accents that make a house a home. Achieve a lovely cracked finish that once took layers of paint and years and years to develop. It no longer takes years to develop the perfect amount of texture and age for your furniture. With Cracked Patina, you can create a perfectly unique pulled finish on any piece. Simply choose the One Step Paint colors you wish to layer and pair them with Cracked Patina for a beautiful weathered look.

Amy's Tip: Get inspiration for aging furniture from the world around you. I love taking notice of weathered shutters, the layers of paint found on scrap wood, and so much more.
