  • Easy application eliminates the necessity of having to fully burnish Venetian Plaster finishes.
  • This material can also create spectacular stained glass effects when applied over a glass/Plexiglas surface that has been properly prepared with PrimEtch™.
  • Ensure that the work surface is clean and free of grease/dust/film. Venetian Gem™ Clear Gloss Coat can be applied over any Venetian Gem® material as well as many other Faux Effects™ Pro Line, Gold Label™ and Silver Line™ products.
  • If desired, tint the Venetian Gem™ Clear Gloss Coat with FauxCrème Color™ or FauxColor™. It also works beautifully straight from the container, without the addition of any colorant.

Depending on the drying conditions and thickness of the layer, this may take a minimum of 4 – 8 hours.
