How long should glaze dry between coats?
I brush, and I usually wait 30 minutes between coats. You can see the difference in color in most glazes between 10 minutes and 30 minutes. I have waited 24 hours before applying a second coat, and I notice no difference. This however changes the more coats you add the more time you need to wait between coats.

How do you crackle paint?
Apply a top coat of flat latex or acrylic paint. Brush one coat only of flat latex or acrylic paint over the crackle medium or glue.
