Color Palette

TIPS

Mix enough glaze/ The amount of glaze you mix up depends on the size of the area you are working on. If working a large area, use a full can of glazing liquid. I’ve found it is always better to have extra glaze at the end of the project than not enough. v

Work from the top down. When glazing, I’ve found it easier to work from the top of the wall to the bottom. If you start at the bottom and work upward, any drips or spills occurring can damage already treated lower portion finish.

Glaze color Golden Sunflower
