A dresser is a large project. You should do it in sections. If you try to do it all at once you'll end up botching surrounding areas that are drying. Let the crackle medium dry to the touch, but it should still be slightly tacky when you apply the top coat. Apply a generous amount of paint and try to cover the area in 1 or 2 strokes, then move on. Any more than 1 or 2 strokes of your brush over the crackle medium will result in undesirable streaks. Brush from dry area to wet paint using very light strokes so as not to "tear" the crackle. Also, experiment on pieces of wood, and try different brands of paint. I had to try 3 different paints before I got the desired look. So... apply crackle, wait about 1-2 hours for proper tackiness, apply generous coat of paint, brush from dry to wet, and stagger your start and stop points to avoid a noticeable pattern. Just wing it... DK
