Glazing furniture is an art that we’ve captured in our DIY eBook Facelift Your Furniture. Along with providing information about every product needed to paint, glaze, and distress, we also provide detailed, step-by-step instructions for making your project a success, with particular detail provided on the glazing process.
When vintage furniture from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s is on it’s last leg and seen it’s better day, paint and glaze can help it take a big turn for the better.
Paint offers the hope of a new look, doing away the weary and worn finish. Glaze then brings the piece to life as it accents molding, detail, and the dents and dings that add to the character of the piece.
Then when the painted and glazed piece is distressed, even more detail and depth pop as the original wood tones contrast with the new look of paint and glaze.
When furniture is given a new look with latex enamel paint, faux technique glaze takes the piece to a whole other level. Glaze makes molding, ornate detail, and dents and dings pop out and come to life!
Paint provides a piece a fresh start; glaze proclaims all the unique character and qualities of a furniture piece. Faux technique glaze is a translucent paint-like substance. Similar to paint, it doesn’t coat as heavily and let’s color beneath peak through.
Ralph Lauren Faux Technique glaze is my product of choice. It’s the highest quality and a quart will last multiple projects. Black and brown tints are those I use most often.
