I HAVE HAD A CRACKLE PAINT NIGHTMARE!! I TRIED TO CRACKLE PAINT AN ENTIRE ROOM, AND FOUND OUT THAT THERE IS NO WAY. AS SOON AS THE ROLLER OR BRUSH TOUCH THE CORNERS OR CEILING THAT I HAD ALREADY PREPARED,THE WHOLE PAINT JOB STARTED BLOBBING AND PEELING OFF IN SHEETS. THE QUESTION IS NOW, HOW DO I PAINT OVER IT?
This a tough one as crackle finish is made not to accept paint. I would think you will need to sand the entire wall and if the craclked areas are not to noticable prime over it, and you may need to try a couple of diffeent primers to see which one will work. If they are noticable you will have to fill it in and that may entail the entire wall and you have to see if the finish will accept the wallboard compound by trying that in a one spot and making sure it will work.
