Wise Owl Glaze
Wise Owl Glaze is simply a thin, translucent film of color that’s painted over a base coat. Many faux and decorative paint techniques require glaze; it’s essential to create rich, dimensional paint treatments. Use glaze to bring out the fine details or help create depth on an otherwise flat piece.
Apply Glaze to your project after your final coat of paint has dried completely and you have applied either one coat of our Varnish Top Coat or One Hour Enamel Clear (allow the paint to dry 24 hours before applying the topcoat). For best results, lightly sand your painted piece, brush-on glaze in sections, and then use a damp lint-free cloth to remove the excess. Allow glaze to fully dry for 2 hours. Glaze produces a strong finish, but to fully protect it the Varnish Top Coat or One Hour Enamel Clear may be applied over the glaze. Wearing gloves can prevent temporary staining.
You can watch this video tutorial that will show you how to achieve different finishes using the glaze with other Wise Owl Paint products. The glaze can be used with Metallic Gilding Paints. And, you can mix the glaze colors or layer them to add even more depth to your projects.
