With painted furniture, faux technique glaze brings the newly refinished piece to life. Glaze accents molding, grainy wood, and the dents and dings that add to the character of older furniture.
Without glaze, painted furniture can feel like something is missing. When glaze is used to draw out the detail and design, the piece and it’s new color takes on a whole new life.
The three drawers on this dresser painted Off White and Turquoise illustrate how glaze works. The middle drawer isn’t glazed, while the upper and lower drawers are.
The middle drawers feels a bit swallowed by the new color, while the other drawers pop with how Turquoise paint and Black glaze work off each other.
