Golden Glazing Liquid is a 100% acrylic, water-based emulsion, developed to be used with waterborne paint systems. It is a slow-drying medium originally designed for interior decorative finishes. Because it is made with 100% pure acrylic water-based polymer emulsions, it can have many uses for fine artists. Glazing Liquid can be blended with house paints and artist acrylic paints to create an incredible variety of colour glazes.
Glazing Liquid can be used for a wide variety of techniques, which require longer open times, including Wood Graining, Marbling, Trompe L'Oeil, Additive & Subtractive Techniques and Glazing.
Fine Art Applications
Glazing Liquid also proves useful in fine art glazing applications, such as mural and easel painting. Use this product in the same manner as an oil painter uses linseed oil and turpentine. Below is a list of possible uses of Glazing Liquid techniques:
It is imperative that this product be used for thin layer applications. Thick layers of the Glazing Liquid, in excess of 1/16", will not dry properly, remaining tacky for extended periods of time.
Mixing with Acrylic or Latex Paints
This product can be mixed with any waterborne paint colour to achieve the desired glaze. It has an open time of 30 to 45 minutes, depending on environmental conditions, and dries with excellent film clarity. Glazing Liquid offers a safe alternative to solvent-based paint systems without forfeiting the working time that is required for creating intricate patterns. It is available in Gloss and Satin finishes.
Glazing Liquid can be blended with paints in any desired amount. Adding small amounts (approx. 25%) to paints will increase brushability. Adding 1 part paint to 10 parts Glazing Liquid produces transparent glazes with excellent open times.
