I just did my kitchen in Valspar Venetian Plaster and though I tried to be careful and not spread it too thick, I have lots of little cracks in some spots (aaargh!) Does anyone have any advice on how to fix this? Apply another coat? Sand down and try again? Would appreciate the help - thx!

It sounds like you may have gotten it on to heavy and it cracked because of this. You may be able to get rid of it by putting on a thin coat and sanding and polishing like the directions say to.

Were you able to resolve the cracking problem? I also just purchased Valspar and now have the cracking issue. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!

My kitchen walls, also painted with Valspar Venetian Plaster paint, is also cracking. I can see little cracks in it as it's drying. This is a very difficult product to use. As you merge with the seams of existing lines, what you've already painted tends to lift off. So I added a bit more to blend it in, and apparently that;s too much and I can see cracks as it's drying. How to Fix this!?

I am having the same issue with Valspar VP cracking. It is not the application method or to thick because I applied VP from Home Depot's paint line in the room immediately above with the same tool and had no major issues. Some minor cracking which was easily resolved by applying and blending a second coat to the affected areas only. This was maybe 5% of the surface.

Now when using the Valspar product I have 85% cracking and some major peeling.
