Discover Our Brand New Posh Chalk Products & WoodUbend Products!

We recently did a live debut of our brand new New Posh Chalk Products – the Posh Chalk Crackle Range – as well as two brilliant new WoodUbend trim designs. If you missed it you can click here to watch the live; if you’d like to learn more information about these exciting newly released products, read on!

Posh Chalk Crackle Range – a set of brand new Posh Chalk Products

Posh Chalk Crackles are designed to create an old, worn and weathered look when applied to any surface…literally, a finish that has cracks in it! You will find that by using our crackle mediums, you can introduce real character to the project that you are working on, either in specific areas or across the whole piece. Each crackle will be unique in size and shape, giving a wonderful natural feel. We have three different products in our Crackle Range. Find out more about them, and how to use them below…

Posh Chalk Crackling Gel

The first of our new Posh Chalk Products is our Crackling Gel – a brilliant and innovative gel-based product that is super-versatile. Use it to build up three-dimensional surfaces and create wonderfully tactile textures. Apply a coat of chalk or mineral paint on top, and the paint itself will crack! It comes in two sizes: 110ml and 200ml.

How to use:
1) Apply our Crackling Gel generously to a non-absorbent base (primed or painted) and leave to dry.  You can gently speed up the drying process with a hair dryer or heat gun. Keep the heating appliance at a safe distance, you don’t want to burn your crackling gel.
2) After the Gel has dried, apply a suitable mineral or chalk paint. The paint will begin to crack as it dries!  The size of cracks depends on the thickness of the coat of paint applied.
3) Leave to dry completely before sealing or adding decoupage to the crackled surface.

Posh Chalk Crackling Enamel

The second of our new Posh Chalk Products is our Crackling Enamel, which comes in a pack of two components (110ml x 2 / 200ml x 2) as it is designed to be used in conjunction with a base of Crackling Gel. Use it to build up a three-dimensional surface and create wonderfully crackled tactile textures with a luxurious glossy finish.

How to use:
1) Apply our Crackling Gel generously to a non-absorbent base (primed or painted) and leave to dry.  You can gently speed up the drying process with a hair dryer or heat gun. Keep the heating appliance at a safe distance, you don’t want to burn your crackling gel.
2) After the Crackling Gel has dried, apply the Crackling Enamel for a glossy, lacquered finish. The Enamel will begin to crack as it dries! The size of cracks depends on the thickness of the Enamel coat applied.

If you would like to spice up your project a little bit you can colour your Crackling Enamel with Posh Chalk Colour Kicks before completing step 2, otherwise the finish will be transparent. You can also rub a coloured paste or patina into the cracks to make them stand out and wipe back for a colourful, weathered appearance.

Posh Chalk Crackling Paste

The last of our new Posh Chalk Products is our Crackling Paste. It also comes in a pack of two components (110ml x 2 / 200ml x 2) as it is also used with our Crackling Gel. It is used to produce a thick finish with more texture and relief than a regular paint.

How to use:
1) Apply our Crackling Gel generously to a non-absorbent base (primed or painted) and leave to dry. You can gently speed up the drying process with a hair dryer or heat gun. Keep the heating appliance at a safe distance, you don’t want to burn your crackling gel.
2) After the Crackling Gel has dried, apply the Crackling Paste. The Paste will begin to crack as it dries! The size of cracks depends on the thickness of the Paste coat applied.

If you would like to spice up your project a little bit you can colour your Crackling Enamel with Posh Chalk Colour Kicks before completing step 2, otherwise the finish will have a neutral colour. As before, you can also rub a coloured paste or patina into the cracks to make them stand out…and wipe back for a colourful, weathered appearance.
