Glaze Wall Technique

There are a few ways to create a glaze when you are painting. My favorite way to create one is to add water to your paint. This works when you are using acrylic paints, but is not recommended when you are painting with oils. You should either use oil or a product recommended by the manufacturer of the paint you are using.

The one problem you will find when using water when you are glazing, is that it will actually dry quicker, and not slower. Often when you are doing a glazing technique, you are going to find that you need more time to manipulate the paint. If this is the case, then you will need to buy a glazing medium specifically for your project.

When you are glazing it will be important that each layer of paint dry before placing the next layer on. Glazing is often used to bring out a certain color. It can actually increase the intensity of the color and can alter the color below it.
