What to use- I like to mix a clear glaze (Valspar translucent mixing glaze) with a Min-Wax stain to find just the right finish. Several of my clients have purchased pre-mixed glaze or Valspar’s Antiquing Glaze and have had excellent results. I use three parts glaze to one part stain.
How to apply- The glaze will dry quickly so I try to work at a steady pace in small sections at a time. You can roll the glaze on, apply with a damp cloth in a circular motion or use a small paint brush. Quickly wipe away the excess with a damp cloth using vertical strokes.
A glazed finish is as durable as it is decorative, I glazed my bright white kitchen cabinets years ago and they still look as good as the day I finished. One of my favorite sites for inspiration when painting furniture is Chrissies Collections, she always has a a new tip or technique that I incorporate into my projects. happy glazing friends,
