Mul­ti­pur­pose glaze

Home Paint It - - MAKEOVER -

Scum­ble glaze is a trans­par­ent liq­uid that is added to paint to ex­tend its dry­ing time so you can work with it to cre­ate dif­fer­ent paint tech­niques. Typ­i­cal tech­niques for which scum­ble glaze is use­ful in­clude colour-wash­ing, drag­ging and dis­tress­ing. For the lat­ter, for ex­am­ple, it is mixed with dark brown paint to achieve a glaze that’s ideal for cre­at­ing an an­tique look on cup­boards. Scum­ble glaze can be used with paint on any sur­face, even table­tops.

It’s avail­able in the paint depart­ment at most hard­ware stores or spe­cial­ist paint stores and is ei­ther oil-based or wa­ter­based for use with oil- or wa­ter-based paint re­spec­tively.
