1. Glamour Glaze – Silver Glaze (Moon Glaze)

This gorgeous warm silver coloured glaze leaves a translucent veil of shimmer, like looking at the moonlight through a cloud.

Preparation and Use: For best results stroke it over van Gogh Fossil Paint using our Studio van Gogh white synthetic bristle brush. The soft bristles have just the right amount of spring to deliver the optimal amount of glaze over your work. Our glaze stays “open” (longer drying time) to make your work easy. Dries to a metallic shiny finish. Soap and water clean-up.

Handy Tip: If desired, remove some of the glaze with high thread count cheesecloth or any lint-free cloth to leave an even lighter hint of silvery glamour. A damp cloth will remove more glaze, a dry cloth will remove less glaze. Try it both ways. The best results will always be achieved after attending a workshop with one of our fully-trained Paintologists and van Gogh Fossil Paint Collection encourages you to take advantage of these fun, educational, and inspiring events.

2. Cabinet Concealer Glaze – French Caffeine Glaze (Kitchen Cabinet Antiquing Glaze) Cabinet Concealer Glaze is designed specifically to refinish tired cabinets in the French Provence style. The secret of professional cabinet makeovers is all in the concealing glaze! Pro secret #1 – Translucent layers of colour: Our product is translucent, allowing layers of colour over your favourite van Gogh Fossil Paint, providing depth and movement.  Pro secret #2 – Manipulate the degree of antiquing by removing most of the glaze: Our Cabinet Concealer Glaze stays “open” (longer drying time) enabling artistic removal after application making professional results easy. Dries to a matte finish. Soap and water clean-up.

Preparation and Use: Brush Cabinet Concealer Glaze over the cabinet painted with van Gogh Fossil Paint, remove most of it by wiping back with high thread count cheese cloth. Test using damp or dry cloth for varying results. Allow as much “age and dirt” (glaze) to remain in the crevices and profile of the cabinet as desired. Allow to dry (Approximately 36 hours in optimal conditions of room temperature and medium humidity).

Handy Tip: Our Cabinet Concealer Glaze offers a “medium” protection for your cabinets- after a 30-day cure time, clean with soap and water. If you prefer to use stronger detergents or a more “scrubbable” finish, top coat with our Clear Table Top Finish for that ultra-tough topcoat. Our Beeswax Furniture Finish may also be applied over the dry glaze for a more satin sheen. This option will require a longer dry time for the beeswax, which could be up to several days.
