Clear Glaze

$4.50$9.00

Glazing is manipulating a sheer, wet, tinted medium over a dried basecoat of paint, creating a soft translucent paint finish full of dimension and richness. Glazes can be applied over any non-flat painted finish – walls, woodwork, furniture, cabinets to name a few. Our glazes are low voc and slow drying, allowing you a good amount of working time. The glaze will dry to a satin finish. 8 Ounce size great for several small items or one large furniture item.
Clear Glaze is untinted. While it looks white in the jar, it will brush on clear and dry clear. A clear glaze applied to a painted finish will add a little sheen, and some extra protection but if I were going to go through the process of adding a coat of ‘something’ over my painted finish, I’d instead choose one of our clear Topcoat finishes which would offer more protection. If you add a colorant to Clear Glaze you will create your own colored glaze. Check out our Powder Pigments for a nice selection of earth tone colorants, or you can create a Shimmer Glaze by adding any of our Mica Powders to your Clear Glaze. Mainly I use Clear Glaze to either soften OTHER colors of glaze I’m using – say I want my bathroom cabinets glazed with the Soot Glaze colortone, but I am using it over a painted white base and I want my end result brighter, not too shadowed looking. By mixing Clear Glaze in with my Soot Glaze, I will create my NEW, softer, less intense Soot Glaze.

For antiquing furniture and cabinets, we like to apply Glazes with a brush, but you can also use a roller.

  • apply the glaze,  work in sections, for example, one door or panel  at a time
  • wipe the glaze off with a soft cloth much like if you were dusting your finish.  Using a dry cloth will remove less glaze  (we like old towel/washrags, not T-shirt or ‘shamwow’ microfiber),  using a damp cloth will remove more.
  • move on to next section until you are done.  Never leave a section 1/2 done.

A glazed surface, once wiped back, will remain wet for awhile.  Fight the urge to fiddle with it.  Most often, brushing or adding more glaze onto a panel that you just finished will ruin it, creating a blotchy effect.   Once you brush it on and wipe it back, LEAVE IT ALONE until it dries.  Its better to error on the side of soft glaze, than darker/heavier glaze.   Once dry, you can always add more glaze.

Glazes can be applied many ways – any tool you might imagine can be pushed into wet glaze to create a variety of effects. Rags, plastic bags, feather dusters, sea sponges… you can leave the glaze heavy or take most of it off, keep fussing or work fast and leave it alone – it’s completely up to you.

Mix well before using. For easiest application, make sure your painted surface is dry a minimum 48 hours before glazing.    Clean up, soap and water.  Water based, water clean up.
