Glazing with the Secrets

    Glazing with the Secrets


    Glazing is an old school paint technique that has been around for ages.
    So what is glazing? Glazing is a painting technique that requires a thin, transparent layer on a painting which modifies the appearance of the underlining paint color. While glazing is an extremely old school painting technique, the Secrets however are like no other product on the market today. It's versatility simply can't be beat.
    While the secrets operate as multiple crafting mediums, today we are going to concentrate on glazing. It's a simple process that yields various results depending on color combinations and technique. 
    The Secrets give you the look you crave, without the wait. Unlike traditional glazes, the Secrets dry rapidly while still remaining workable even when dry. It's almost like having DIY super powers. SeaPaint is reactivated by water. This beautiful little magic trick enables possibilities that you never thought possible. Blend and layer with ease. The Secrets make staining a breeze.
    Choose from over 13 shades or mix our shades to create your own. 
    To begin you will need the following:
     Secret shade- for glazing
     Step 1) Shake your paint. Brush on SeaPaint shade with the SeaCult Brush.
    Let dry 5 minutes. 
    Step 2) In a small bowl mix 1 tsp of Secret and 1 tsp of water. Dip SeaCult Brush in to mixture and lightly brush across painted surfaces. (For more workability, brush on a layer of Matte SeaGlass in between these steps) 
    Step 3. Once dry (1 minute) take a slightly damp cloth and run it over the surface blending until the desired look is achieved.
    Step 4.) Once dry, brush on SeaGlass Topcoat to protect your finish. Dries in 5 minutes.
     With 31 shades of SeaPaint and 20 shades of Secret, that's nearly 1,000 possibilities.  
    Whoa. Get busy.

    I’d love a catalog too esp with color charts of the paints vs the glazes.
    Tools are very important too – do you describe what each tool accomplishes?

    Can I use this glaze over laminate or a piece I have painted with another brand of chalk paint?

    Penny Orr

    Yes! So this is the technique I used to get the beautiful Patina on the iron cross! Didn’t even remember I read this a while ago. Thanks so much Jess (& staff) for your blog! ;-)
