Painting with Glaze

Glaze Painting

This bedroom had an old style texture and antique white paint for 20 years! Time for an update. I wanted a southwest, western, rustic stucco look. The old texture was scraped off and new texture applied with joint compound and a stomp brush creating a technique called heavy Monterey Drag. This was allowed to dry then Sherwin Williams Divine White Satin was applied for the base coat.


When the base coat dried Sherwin Williams Glaze and Thatch Brown Satin was mixed 4 parts glaze to 1 part brown. This mixture was applied and rubbed off with a rag or sponge to the desired lightness. You rub it almost immediately after applying, using a circular motion. Work in small sections or the glaze will dry.


This is a close up shot of the texture.
