Antique Glaze Finish
Antiquing is the technique of glazing a base finish to simulate age or create an interesting color effect. Enamel is the most common base for antiquing, but varnished, shellacked, and lacquered surfaces can also be glazed. Using antiquing glaze is one of the most effective finish process . Glaze is generally thicker, will finish a bit darker, and sometimes is more of a paste .
Application of Glaze
Before applying the glaze, paint your wood pieces as you normally would, and allow it to dry completely. If you’re going to distress the piece, do so before applying the glaze. If you’ve sanded after painting, either to smooth out the surface or to distress, make sure that the piece is free of dust before applying the glaze. Antiquing wood with glaze will add a darkened patina to the top of your piece, and creates the appearance of dark buildup in any crevices, lines, and design work your piece may have.
