Glaze Effects are translucent water based colors used to create beautiful decorative finishes such as distressing, marble, shabby chic, burnishing, color washing, rag rolling and wood graining
Use over Water Based Wood Stains, and Milk Paints. Glaze Effects can be inter-mixed or layered to create custom colors. They may also be layered over one another to create deeper, richer looks. It highly recommended to utilize Extender to increase open time and workability.
WARNING: TEST FOR COMPATIBILITY WHEN USING WITH OTHER BRANDS. A good rule of thumb is do not mix brands. It might work, it might not, as each manufacturer uses different technology. We can't troubleshoot results if you use another manufacturer's products with ours.
Glaze Effects are available in the following colors: Winter White, Yellow Ochre, Red Sienna, Burnt Umber, Van Dyke Brown, Pitch Black, and Clear Base (not shown). All finishes are shown here over Antique White Milk Paint. The digitized colors shown are for reference purposes only. Always test stain on a hidden area of the wood to verify desired color.
APPLYING GLAZE EFFECTS
Frequently Asked Questions: The glaze dried too fast - what can i do? Remove existing glaze with a gray Scotch Bright pad and a little water. The glaze will dry fast on a non-sealed surface. If you want to slow the drying (especially in low humidity situations) the Extender should be used 10-15% by volume. A couple of ounces per pint of glaze. You can also use a coat of High Performance top coat before you glaze, it will give you more control. Also put the glaze on LIBERALLY using a Handi Painter applicator âthis will make it easier to wipe off. Use Bounty or Viva paper towels, not cotton rags to wipe off. Cotton rags work great for oil products but paper towels work better with water based glazes.
