Clear Glaze Medium is a matte transparent acrylic glazing medium with several different uses. Use alone or in conjunction with Jo Sonja Matte Flow Acrylic and Background Colours. Apply as a light sealer prior to painting, staining or varnishing or as a barrier coat between layers. Mix with base colour to seal as you basecoat. Use as a general painting medium for staining, glazing and other transparent effects.
As a sealer or barrier coat, apply a medium coat of Clear Glaze Medium to the surface using a clean brush suitable to surface size.
Apply undiluted as a light sealer on raw wood and throughout painting. For pickling or staining wood, seal with 1 coat of Clear Glaze Medium over raw wood to ensure an even application of stain.
Mix desired Jo Sonja Matte Flow Acrylic with Clear Glaze Medium to create glazes or wood stains. Begin with 3 parts Clear Glaze Medium and 1 part Retarder or colour. Ratio is determined by strength of colour desired. Apply paint and medium in direction of the wood grain, wiping with a soft lint free cloth to remove excess. Allow to dry before repeating layers.
May be used as a general painting medium where transparent colour is desired. For glazing or floating colour, dress the brush in Clear Glaze Medium or the above Clear Glaze Medium & Retarder mix. Blend on the palette before side loading with colour. Blend to soften colour and apply to deepen value or enhance colours.
Apply Clear Glaze Medium undiluted throughout the painting and prior to varnishing as a protective barrier coat. Application of Clear Glaze Medium over the design area will lock down painting and allow ease of correction without disturbing previous layer.
