Step 1) Paint your piece
This technique can be done on raw wood as well, but it’s generally used on a piece that has been given a base coat of Country Chic Paint. In this case we’ve chosen Pebble Beach.
Step 2) Shake and stir the glaze
Before opening your jar, shake the glaze, then stir it for about a minute with a stir stick before proceeding to the next step.
Step 3) Mix paint with glaze
In a 4 part glaze to 1 part paint ratio, mix together clear glaze with the paint color of your choice in a separate container (in this case we chose Tropical Cocktail). Blend well with a stir stick until the color is consistent throughout your mixture.
Step 4) Paint on to your piece
You can use a paint brush or a lint-free rag for this step, but we prefer to use a brush as it won’t soak up as much of the glaze so you’ll get more coverage with the product and less waste. The glaze will dry fairly quickly, so you may prefer to work in small sections.
Step 5) Remove any excess glaze
Immediately after applying the glaze with a paint brush, use a lint-free rag or a sponge to wipe of the excess. It’s a good idea to experiment with this on a sample board before tackling your whole piece because every tool will give your finish a different look. If you choose a dense sponge, you can achieve a smoother, more consistent look. If you prefer a bit of texture try using a rag or a porous sponge like Rosanne is using here.
There’s no right or wrong with this process, so keep wiping until you’re happy with the amount of color and texture you’ve got.
