Latex Blend & Glaze Decorative Painting Liquid

A semi-translucent glazing and blending medium used to create faux finishes and decorative painting techniques. Mixes perfectly with interior latex paint, universal tints, or artist water colorants. Do not exceed 6 oz. of colorant. Mix ratio: 4 parts glaze to 1 part paint. Heavy bodied formula holds impressions and effects well and will not run or sag on vertical surfaces. Creates a nonyellowing finish that is washable and durable. Spreads and brushes easily and sets slowly for easy wiping and blending. May add glaze extender to prolong working time. Begins to set in 15 minutes but requires 18 hours for complete drying. May be top coated after 24 hours. May be used on virtually all interior surfaces other than floors and on exterior surfaces not exposed to severe weathering. Clean up with soap and water.
