You can create elegant and individual finishes using Faux Glazing techniques.
For Best Results:
Mix the entire quantity of glazing color needed for each glaze before you start painting. You'll help ensure uniformity of color.
Paint the base color and allow it to dry completely before glazing.
This project uses 2 topcoat glaze colors.
To prepare the first topcoat glaze color, pour 1 part BEHR ULTRA™ or PREMIUM PLUS® paint (one quart) and 4 parts FAUX GLAZE (one gallon) 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 color, add more paint to the mixture. The mixture will generally cover approximately 400 sq. ft.
Use this same 1:4 ratio in the preparation of the second topcoat glaze color.
Pour the first color glaze mixture into a paint tray and work a 6" 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 color onto a small section. You do not have to cover the base color completely with the colored glaze.
Quickly and in the same section, brush on short, random strokes of the second glaze color with a 4" brush.
While the colored glazes are wet, follow your treatment with a pad applicator. In both small and large overlapping crisscross motions, gently blend the glaze colors 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.
