Crystal FX paint effect
Alsa Corp.'s Crystal FX is a self activated crystalizing mask that works over basecoat or intercoat with no need to sand or wash.
Step 1 - Prep and paint the surface with your choice of Alsa's Stylin' Basecoats or compatible brands. (This base color will become the color that shows as the lines through the crystals.)
Step 2 - Apply the Crystal FX in a lighter coat for small crystals and a wet or heavy coat to achieve the large crystal effect across the surface.
Step 3 - Allow to dry 10-15 minutes air dry or force dry for smaller more tightly woven crystal effect.
Step 4 - Now apply your contrasting color (the color that will be shown through the spaces in the crystals). Apply this coat in a light dusting action.
Note: Take care to apply only a light coat as a wet coat of paint will make it harder to remove the crystals.
Step 5 - Allow this layer to fully dry. (10-15 minutes)
Step 6 - Using water and a rag or sponge, scrub off the crystals. This will leave you with a very pronounced crystal design.
Step 7 - Allow any excess water to dry.
Step 8 - Apply Alsa Speed Clear or any other preferred topcoat. (You may tint the clear with candy concentrates.
