How to Use Furniture Glaze

Step 1) Paint your piece

Before using the glaze, be sure to paint your piece first. 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

Take your paint brush and apply glaze onto your piece. For this piece, we decided to use Graphite. 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 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, you’ll 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?

These new products can be found at many of our retailers. Call ahead for availability. If you do not have a local retailer, you can order glaze online by clicking here.

Love this idea for a top coat to all of my chalk painting projects! I am currently working on an antique chair and several tables. I have a vintage telephone table and a large mirror that I would love to paint and glaze! Can’t wait to try!
