Up until last October, I wasn’t a big glazed furniture kind of gal.
Glazed donut kind of gal…abso-freakin-lutely….glazed furniture…not so much.
But then this happened.
That would be the IKEA Tarva drink bar that I used Baroque and Enhance Dark Glaze on.
At that point, dark glaze and I started to become friends.
We experimented. We plotted makeovers.
We worked together on a dresser…
That’s the glamorous dresser….
Dark glaze and I were skipping happily along off into the sunset….
And then I met clear glaze….
And he swept me off my feet….because he can turn any color into a glaze….
Before you ask me, no I was not drinking during the writing of this post. That’s shocking, I know, especially seeing how I just wrote about having a love affair with furniture glaze paint and then cheating on it with another one.
I’m a special person.
You can make furniture glaze in any color – I like to call it color glaze.
And its so easy.
How To Make Furniture Glaze In Any Color
- Velvet Finishes Enhance Clear Glaze
- Any Velvet Finishes paint color of your choice
- Lint free cloth
Combine a little clear glaze with a little paint.
I mixed mine up on a styrofoam plate to show you the process better, but it would be easier to use a cup. You want more glaze than you do paint. I poured out about 1/8 – 1/4 of a cup of glaze and just dipped my paintbrush into the paint.
Mix it together.
Just mix the two together until all the glaze is tinted with your color.
Brush it on.
Brush the glaze on, let it sit for a minute or so, and then wipe off the excess with a lint free cloth. Repeat this process if you would like more color on your piece.
The video below shows a turquoise colored glaze being made and then painted onto a piece painted white to get a beachy colored vibe.
Bask in the new-found possibilities.
The Modern glaze has a great beachy vibe. I think it would look great “washed” over white patio furniture if you are into that beachy look.
I was planning to use the modern glaze above on an actual piece of furniture, but got so excited about all the color possibilities, I just pulled out more paint and started making glazes in all different colors to show you.
A.K.A. my ADHD took over.
The Vivid glaze reminds me of faded lipstick – which I like the look of – I know – I’m weird. The Exotic glaze is pretty light – I think it has a beachy feel too.
I’m dying to try these glazes out on some glass jars too.
What do you think they would be good for?
What glaze colors would you make?
P.S. Velvet Finishes Glaze also doubles as a protectant topcoat!
