“Cracked Gesso will elevate your milk paint restorations into true works of art.”
There’s a certain kind of beauty in the rough edges and cracked lines that antiques develop from years of hands lovingly placing plates upon a table’s surface, or a mother’s hip closing a dresser drawer as she holds her sleeping baby night after night. When you pair Cracked Gesso with Toscana Milk Paint, you get full control over adding these lovely signs of age and history as you refinish your favorite pieces.
Use Cracked Gesso to add depth and character!
It no longer takes years to develop the perfect amount of texture and age for your furniture. Now, you can create a perfectly unique cracked finish on any piece, any time. Simply apply Gesso to your unfinished wood surface and follow with your favorite Toscana Milk Paint. You will see a beautiful cracked finish appear on your furniture that reminds you of a true European antique.
Amy’s Tip: For advanced old world finishes, apply stain before layering on Cracked Gesso and then Toscana Milk Paint for an even deeper old world finish.
