- 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.
