Apply the glaze to your project after your final coat of paint has dried completely (allow paint to dry 24 hours before applying). For best results, lightly sand your painted piece, brush on glaze in sections and use a damp lint-free cloth to remove the excess. Allow glaze to fully dry for 2 hours. Glaze produces a strong finish but polyurethane or polycrylic may be applied after 24 hours. Wearing gloves can prevent temporary staining.
