  • When you approach an edge, corner or ceiling line. (That has been protected by masking tape prior to painting) 

​​

  • Spread the glaze along the edges of the masking tape using a small paint brush to ensure consistent results.​​​​

  • Next, blend with The Woolie, The MINI Woolie, or The Little Woolie.

  • IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not reapply glaze once your prior area begins to dry.  This will create an undesirable  effect.  

Helpful Tips

  • It very important that you apply masking tape to protect your woodwork and ceiling lines BEFORE you begin painting. 

  • Refer to the Room Preparation Instructions.  This can be found further down on this page.

  • Always blend edges, corners and ceiling lines at the same time you are using the roller.  Do NOT wait to do this until the end to blend these areas.

Rag Painting Roller | What is Faux Glaze

What is a faux finish glaze?

  • Glaze is simply a thin, translucent film of color that is applied over a base coat of a satin finish painted surface. Glaze creates a rich, dimension in many faux and decorative paint techniques.

What does faux finish glaze do?

  • Paint normally dries very quickly.  Faux glaze slows down the drying time of paint which gives you more time to manipulate your color to create the look you want.  It also makes paint colors translucent to enable you to create the look of depth and texture illusion.

What Kind of Glaze? 

  • Water-based glazes and paints are the easiest to work with and to clean up.
