I used the Van Dyke Brown Glaze today over Imagine and I’m diggin it!
While I was painting the pedestal the other day with IMAGINE I painted up some paint sample sticks too.
Today I glazed/painted them 10 different ways – I used a new philosophy when glazing these sticks…all the other ones I have done were glazed/removed pretty evenly. This time I decided show different degrees of removing the glaze…all my paint students have different ideas of how much/little glaze they would remove…so these samples look uneven but I did it with purpose to show variety!
I also used 3 of the gilding waxes on some of my Paint Couture!™ samples.
So all the samples were painted with 2 coats of Imagine and part of the stick was finished with Matte Lacquer Couture!™. (The glaze does not bite in as much over the lacquer and gives you more flexibility to work with the glaze.)
So from the left here is how I finished each stick:
In the first group photo above –
1. brilliant white & rich gold metallic paint/Blue Organza Gilding Wax
2. Brilliant White Paint/Green Moire and Silver Taffeta Gilding Wax
3. Verde Glaze
4. Black Chiffon Glaze
5. Zinc Glaze
and in the 2nd group photo:
6. Black Walnut Glaze
7. Champagne Glaze
8. Amber Honey Glaze
9. Lite Brown Sugar Glaze
10. Van Dyke Brown Glaze
So after making all the samples I decided to glaze the pedestal with the Black Chiffon. The pedestal was an older piece and had a lot of marks and texture (which I kept because I liked the character) and I love the way the black chiffon kinda highlighted the “age” of the piece….so here is the finished pedestal with Imagine, Brilliant White, Rich Gold and Black Chiffon Glaze Couture!™. (Also in the photo collage is a before the glaze photo).
