You can create elegant and individual finishes using Faux Glazing techniques.
For Best Results:
Mix the entire quantity of glazing colour needed for each glaze before you start painting. You'll help ensure uniformity of colour.
Paint the base colour and allow it to dry completely before glazing.
This project uses 2 topcoat glaze colours.
To prepare the first topcoat glaze colour, pour 1 part PREMIUM PLUS ULTRA® or PREMIUM PLUS® paint (0.95L) and 4 parts FAUX GLAZE (3.79L) into a bucket and mix the contents thoroughly. For a more see-through, transparent look, add extra faux glaze to the mixture. For a denser or more opaque glaze colour, add more paint to the mixture. The mixture will generally cover approximately 37 sq. m.
Use this same 1:4 ratio in the preparation of the second topcoat glaze colour.
Pour the first colour glaze mixture into a paint tray and work a 15 cm mini roller into the glaze until it is fully loaded. To remove excess glaze, roll the tool on the ribbed area of the paint tray.
Starting at the top corner of your project, roll a very thin coat of this first glaze colour onto a small section. You do not have to cover the base colour completely with the coloured glaze.
Quickly and in the same section, brush on short, random strokes of the second glaze colour with a 10 cm brush.
While the coloured glazes are wet, follow your treatment with a pad applicator. In both small and large overlapping crisscross motions, gently blend the glaze colours together.
Continue to work in small sections. Overlap and blend each section as you go to avoid hard edges.
Repeat the process until the project is complete.
