How To Glaze Your Painted Furniture For An Antique Look
Country Chic Paint’s Furniture Glaze gives any piece of painted furniture a beautifully aged look by adding depth and dimension to the color. It will also make any detailed areas really pop! It’s eco-friendly, suitable for both indoor and outdoor projects, and dries with a matte finish.
Country Chic Paint offers six different colors of Furniture Glaze:
- Clear Glaze (tintable with any paint color)
- Graphite Glaze (dark grey)
- Smoky Quartz Glaze (chocolate brown)
- Tiger’s Eye Glaze (warm red brown)
- Limestone Glaze (off white)
- Slate Glaze (grey)
Step 1) Paint your piece
Start by painting your project with any color of Country Chic Paint. For this table, we’ve decided to go with Rocky Mountain.
Make sure you let the paint dry at least overnight before you glaze it so you know for sure it’s fully dried.
Step 2) Shake and stir your glaze
Before you open the jar, give it a good shake for about 1 minute. Then you can open the jar and stir it for another minute to make sure the ingredients are mixed well.
Step 3) Apply Glaze
When applying the glaze, be sure to really push it into all the nooks and crannies, and anywhere else wear and tear would naturally occur. Apply it in small sections, as it dries quickly and you want to make sure it stays workable so you can remove excess glaze later.
Step 4) Remove excess glaze
Immediately after applying your glaze, take a damp cloth and wipe away as much glaze as you want in order to create the look you’re after.
If you realize you’ve taken off too much of the glaze, you can simply go over it again with another coat of glaze and wipe it off again to build up your coverage in layers.
That’s all there is to it. Pretty simple isn’t it?
