Over­glaz­ing takes a cer­tain amount of con­fi­dence, par­tic­u­larly to­ward the end of a paint­ing where ev­ery­thing is start­ing to look fin­ished. It is a tech­nique that is well worth pur­su­ing, it can make a huge dif­fer­ence to the unity of a paint­ing. Over­glazes can be soft and sub­tle or very strong and dra­matic de­pend­ing on the ef­fect you are try­ing to cre­ate. Here are a few points to re­mem­ber:

 Be sure your paint­ing is thor­oughly dry.

 Work quickly and gen­tly.

 Use a clean, damp brush to soften the edges.

 It is safer to be too pale rather than go in

too heavy.
