Faux Finishes & Restoration Techniques for Historic Homes

Glazing Techniques    

This section highlights techniques which float a water soluble solution, glazing medium, or oil-based solution or gel, over a base coat, to achieve a specific look. Glazing mediums vary by viscosity, and solvent used for thinning. When using oil-based glazes, be sure to have adequate ventilation for the job, as prolonged exposure can cause headaches and/or health problems. Make sure to use the appropriate finish coat for your medium. For example, it may be necessary to intersperse seal coats between color layers in order to assure the next coat does not damage or weaken the layer underneath.
