Applying Glaze Couture

Preparation

  • Before applying Glaze Couture make sure your Paint Couture painted projects have dried at least 4 hours.  If using chalk type paints wait at least 2 hours before applying Glaze Couture.
  • If your project shows bush marks, sand lightly with 400 grit sandpaper to remove them.  Wipe off any sandpaper dust with a damp cloth and let dry.

Applying Glaze Couture

  • Apply the glaze with a brush or 1/2″ nap roller.  Liberally apply the glaze.  Be sure your tools are dry when applying the glaze.  Wait a few minutes and gently wipe off excess glaze using a staining pad, foam brush, cheesecloth or lint free cotton rag.  For more working time dampen the cheesecloth or staining pad and wring it out well, then remove the glaze.
  • To use it as a stain:  Apply the glaze evenly with a foam brush and do not remove.  It can also be applied with a good quality brush, such as the Zibra Sash or Fan Brush and do not remove the glaze.  A second coat may be applied to deepen the glaze color after the first coat has thoroughly dried.
  • If you have to glaze a large area and need more working time:  Paint a coat of Matte or Satin Couture Topcoat to act as a barrier coat.  Let this coat of topcoat dry 4 hours before applying the glaze.
  • Low Viscosity Glaze can be added to Glaze Couture to extend your working time.
  • Allow the glaze to dry 24 hours before applying Couture Topcoat.  This will provide the best durability.
  • Clean up is with warm soapy water.
