Directions For Use
Note: Surfaces, while typically textured, should be smooth, clean and dry and cracks should be repaired prior to glaze application to eliminate glaze "hanging up"in recessed areas. Surface should be well covered with a quality satin or semi-gloss wall paint (glaze cannot be wiped from flat wall paint and wipes to clean from gloss wall paint) to allow for ease of wipe and removal of glaze, leaving behind color effect on textured areas. Paint should be completely dry prior to glaze application OR the resulting appearance may be undesirable.
- Mask trim with a good quality low release masking tape and caulk to eliminate glaze bleeding under tape and to achieve clean lines or use masking tape and lightly wet edge of tape line prior to applying glaze.
- Apply with a tool desired (roller or brush), in approximately 4 sq. ft. section for ease of workability and removal of excess glaze.
- Wipe quickly and complete each section prior to glaze becoming tacky.
- Leave a wet edge (1" - 2") of wet glaze at each 4 sq. ft. section to prevent lapping when subsequent 4 sq. ft. sections are applied.
- Use good quality, lint free white wiping rags and exchange rags frequently for clean consistent wiping and removal of glaze.
Sponging: Use a large damp natural sponge and apply glaze by randomly dabbing sponge over surface area
Dragging or Combing: Apply an even coat of glaze with a good quality 1/4" nap roller cover. Immediately pull brush or comb vertically down the wall in straight even strokes.
Distressing/Leather Look: Apply an even coat of glaze to a 4 sq. ft. area with a good quality 1/4" nap roller cover and wipe in consistent motions (vertical or horizontal) for consistency. To leave more glaze behind and achieve a darker effect, let glaze sit for 60 seconds prior to wiping.
Stippling: Apply a light, even coat of glaze to a 4 sq. ft. area with a good quality 1/4" nap roller cover. Immediately, using a damp sponge, a damp rag or cheesecloth, remove some of the glaze and create a pattern.
Faux Finishes: Many faux finishes such as granite, marble and wood can be achieved by layering multiple colors of tinted glaze with various tools.
Top Coatings: Glaze will oxidize and dry, however, if a clear finish is desired, a waterborne clear topcoat suitable for brush and roll application over acrylic latex paint can be purchased through your local paint retailer.
