Colorantic™ Glazes are available in several colors: Chocolate Cake, Translucent Window, Cloud White and Kitten Gray. They are also available in different formats (8oz, 16oz, 32oz, 58oz and gallon).
Long before varnish was invented, glaze was the most common product used to protect furniture (as was wax). The only difference with varnish is that glaze dries a little more slowly than varnish.
Our Chocolate Cake, White Cloud and Kitten Grey colors are already pre-mixed. They can also be used as a more or less opaque dye, depending on the number of coats applied. If you want to see the wood grain, just apply one coat of your tinted glaze and you’re done!
Translucent Window clear glaze, meanwhile, can be mixed with any Colorantic™ chalk paint color. The recipe is simple: 3/4 glaze to 1/4 paint. You can create your own “colored opaque dye” to suit your needs.
You can also use a coloured glaze over a coat of Colorantic™ paint. Simply wipe off the glaze with a clean, dry cloth. In this way, you can create a linear effect.
The different uses of glaze:
- Wood staining
- Create a linear effect
- Layering technique
- Painting fabric
- Apply glitter
