Paint the base color and allow it to dry completely before glazing.
To prepare your topcoat glaze color, pour 1 part PREMIUM PLUS ULTRA® or PREMIUM PLUS® paint (one quart) and 4 parts FAUX GLAZE (one gallon) into a bucket and mix the contents thoroughly. For a more see-through or transparent look, add extra faux glaze to the mixture. For a denser or more opaque glaze color, add more paint to the mixture. The mixture will generally cover approximately 400 sq. ft.
Using a 2" wide nylon/polyester brush, transfer the color glaze mixture from the bucket to a damp sea sponge. Be careful not to oversaturate the sponge with glaze. Then, use your sponge to lightly apply the colored glaze over a small section of the working surface in a random pattern. Do not soak the sponge in the glaze.
While the glaze is wet, follow your sponge treatment with a pad applicator. In a random circular or wave motion, soften and blend the sponge marks together.
Work with both tools until you arrive at a look you like.
Continue to work in small sections. Overlap and blend each section as you go to avoid hard edges.
Repeat the process until the project is complete.
