Faux Finish Glazes Bring Your Project To Life

The right glazing finish can sometimes be the final touch that transforms all your hard work into the beautiful and stunning faux finish you’ve been dreaming of. Whether you’re trying to create a faux stone, textile, plaster, or any other type of finish, the faux glaze can be the last piece of the puzzle to help you achieve the texture, hue, chroma, and overall appearance you’re aiming for.

Faux Masters Studio carries a full selection of glazes you can use to perfect your faux finish and create a masterpiece that family and friends will admire for years to come.

Slow-Drying Products Make Your Faux Finish Glaze a Breeze

One of the hardest parts about many glazes is they tend to dry quickly, and this can make application difficult. The glazes we carry have been chosen for their ease of use, and that means increased open times, slow drying times, and full workability so you can manipulate the glaze with ease and have complete control over the final finish. Many of the glazes can also be mixed with FauxCrème Color to customize the color of the finish, allowing you to have complete control over the shade.

We carry several types of glazing products, including:

  • AquaCreme, AquaCreme Low Viscosity, and AquaGlaze
  • FauxCrème, FauxCréme Pre-Mix, and LO VOC FauxCrème
  • RsGlaze and RsGlaze Low Viscosity

Easy-to-Use Glazing Products Make Any Faux Finish Achievable

There’s no end to the effects that you can create when you have the right products and tools at your disposal, and just about any surface or texture can be replicated through faux painting. Some of the most popular faux finishes include simulated natural elements, such as marble and wood grain, and the AquaCreme and AquaCreme Low Viscosity glazes are both ideal for this. Similarly, the AquaGlaze is a versatile and easy-application glaze that’s great for a variety of techniques, such as sponging, marbling, bagging, and more.

Other common faux finishes that people love for walls, ceilings, cabinets, and decorative projects include:

  • Textiles such as leather, suede, and linen
  • Metals like iron and bronze
  • Rust and oxidation
  • Venetian plaster
  • Metallics
  • Trompe l’oeil
  • Sand

Basic Application Tips for Faux Wall Painting Glaze

Each glazing product comes with individual application instructions, but they all follow similar steps. Any project will begin with a thorough sanding and cleaning of the surface to remove dirt, dust, grease, and other debris, and to provide a good surface for the paint to adhere to. After cleaning, you’ll apply two coats of SetCoat in your chosen color, and then allow the final coat to dry for at least 24 hours. Next, you can tint your glaze of choice, and then apply the glaze with a sprayer, brush, or roller. Once the glaze has been applied, you can create texture by blotting the glaze with a material of your choice, such as cheesecloth, paper, or crumpled plastic. If you like, you can then create even more depth and texture by dry brushing, rag rolling, or using other tools and techniques to achieve your final finish.

Glazing is an important step in many faux finishes because it helps create the final color and texture of your surface. At Faux Masters Studio, we have a full line of high-quality glazing products to choose from, and also have the tools and supplies you’ll need to master any painting technique or create any faux finish you like.
