White buckstitch lace surface cracking

Recommended Posts

Hi all, it's been some time since I have posted here. I am currently working on a filigree belt with buckstitcing. The issue I am having is that the white surface is cracking in some of the stitches. Is there any way to prevent this? The lace is several years old so that could be the issue or my slits are still to tight. I waxed the flesh side with paraffin and tried opening both sides of the slit with my fid. I even used much shorter lengths of lace.has anyone ever run into this and if so what did you do to prevent it. Im thinking its because the lace is old and the surface is dried out.
