Crackle Painting Countertops

I haven't "crackle painted", but I have painted countertops. If you do this, just make sure that you lightly sand your countertops first, then apply 1-2 coats of primer. Using a sponge roller is best to keep the texture even. Once done and dried, lightly sand the countertops again (maybe with a 120-150 grit sandpaper), to smooth out. After painting with the crackle paint and it is dried, you will need to do another light sanding. The final step would be to put a sealer over the countertops. The options are: polyurethane (which will require several coats) or an epoxy glaze coating (FAMOWOOD Glaze Coat) is sold at Lowe's and other home improvement stores. Joann Fabrics and other stores like it sell another version (can't think of the name).
