How To Glaze Your Painted Furniture For An Antique Look | Glazing Tutorial


Hi there, it’s Rosanne here from Country Chic Paint.
Today I’d like to introduce you to a great product with which you can transform the look of
your pieces dramatically, so stay tuned! In this tutorial we’ll be using Country
Chic’s glazes, some lint-free rags, a paintbrush, and some stir sticks as well as a bucket of water. I’m very
excited to introduce you to Country Chic’s glazes today We’ve been working on this product for
many months so I’m excited to finally introduce you to it You can use Country Chic’s furniture glaze
to give any piece an antique look When you apply it on a piece like this
it stays behind in all the little crevices, bringing out the details of your piece.
It also changes the color of your entire piece adding a
beautiful patina to it Our furniture glaze is water-based
and really easy to work with The glaze is completely suitable to be
used for indoor as well as outdoor projects. The finish is
almost flat so it won’t add any sheen to your project. Another thing that I like about our glazes is that it is almost VOC free so it’s completely safe for your health
and the environment We have the glaze available in the
clear, tintable base so that you can mix any color of glaze
that you’d like Simply mix the paint in a 4 part glaze to 1 part paint ratio, and stir well We also have three pre-mixed colors available. First is the
color Graphite which is a cool grey that dries
almost black Next we have Tiger’s Eye which is a mahogany brown with a warm
undertone We also have Smoky Quartz which is a dark chocolate kind of brown and
it has a very cool undertone Currently we have the glaze available in
16 oz containers as well as 4 oz containers, so you can pick the
size that you need for your projects Before you apply your glaze you want to make
sure you paint it first So this piece we’ve painted in the color
Rocky Mountain which is cool, charcoal grey. If you are
going to glaze it you want to make sure that you leave it to
dry overnight so that you know for sure that it’s fully dried our next step is to choose what color
glaze we’re going to use If you’re looking for a cooler brown, then you want to use Smoky Quartz. If you’re after a more warmer tone then Tiger’s Eye is a great
option. For this piece I think a cool tone would suit it best so I’m going to
use our black, Graphite. I’m going to shake the can a
little bit and then I’ll stir it as well to make sure it’s properly mixed After you mix the glaze you can grab a
brush and simply start applying glaze to your piece. I prefer using
a brush over a cloth for example just because I
feel like the cloth is going to absorb so much of the
glaze. Some people prefer a cloth though So I’m just going to brush the glaze on
making sure I get it in all the detailed parts of my piece I’m going to paint the glaze on
making sure that I get it in all the detailed parts of my piece;
anywhere that dust would normally collect and wear and tear would naturally occur.
Keep in mind that the glaze will change your overall paint color. You’ll want to make
sure you work in small sections on your piece If you do a chest of drawers for example,
do two drawers at a time then you can make sure that your glaze
stays workable Once I’ve painted on the glaze I’m going to
take this lint-free cloth and dampen it I’m going to wring out as much of the
water as I can and then use the cloth to remove the
excess glaze off of my piece As you can see most of the glaze is left
behind in the detail areas Once you’re happy with the look you’ve created
you have the option of leaving it or sealing it with wax or Tough Coat So I’ve now glazed the bottom of this table
and I just want to show you the different
colors on little pieces of board here Just so you have an idea of what the other
colors look like as well. So I’ll start with Graphite again So I’m just going to paint it on. You want to
make sure you really push it into those detail areas because that’s where you
want it to stay behind So then I’m going to take my wet cloth
again and rub away as much of the glaze as I want You’re really able to bring out the details
of your piece with glaze So that is our Graphite glaze on Cheesecake Next I want to show you our Smoky Quartz Again you make sure that you push the
paint in all your little detail areas And again just simply remove as much of the glaze as you want. Most of it
you want to leave behind in the crevices. And then
finally I wanna show you our Tiger’s Eye which is our warm brown color Okay so that is our Tiger’s Eye on Cheesecake and as you can see there’s quite a big
difference in brown tone between these two. This is
a very warm brown with red and yellow undertones and
this is definitely a much cooler brown giving you a very
different kind of look You can find our glazes at one of the
Country Chic Paint retailers so make sure you visit our website, countrychicpaint.com and click on the store locator to find a

  • roger ball says:

    I ordered a white-washed small end table that I was hoping would match a white-washed coffee table that I had bought earlier which I loved the color. The new table is much grayer/dark brown color. Is there any glaze that I could purchase which would make the colors light with more yellow tones

  • Mike Ellis says:

    Can you record with a stereo mic or change audio to mono? It's distracting to listen you with headphones. Your channel is interesting and helpful. Thanks

  • Zeyno says:

    Is that country paint chalk paint or different kind of paint?

  • Niara Terela Isley says:

    These glazes look wonderful. If I used the tigers eye glaze over something painted turquoise, would it change the color or just give it a warm brown aged kind of patina? And what types of cloth can be used that will be lint free?

  • Allan Docater says:

    Did You make it with woodprix instructions?

    I have only music and no voice! Oh no, I really wanted to watch/hear this one 😢
