Real Milk Paint Company Finishing Glaze is a tinted, matte, protective topcoat for your paint finishes. It will catch in the crevices of your piece, e.g. moldings, to highlight the contours of the wood. Finishing Glaze will protect Milk Paint finishes and make them washable. Finish Glaze prevents washing from wearing away the paint and marring your finish.
Finishing Glaze comes in three colors: Mocha, Espresso, and Mahogany. Goosebay has samples of all three colors painted over a Soft White Milk paint finish so you can see the actual applied color.
Finishing Glaze is very similar to Finishing Cream but the glazes are tinted, whereas the Finishing Cream is clear. Finishing Glazes can be used in conjunction with Finishing Cream. If you are looking for a very lightly applied tint, just highlighting some crevices, you can apply the Finishing Cream first over your paint, then apply the Finishing Glaze. The Finishing Cream acts as a barrier coat and will give you the ability to apply the glaze minimally, exactly where you want it.
You can also apply paint over the Finishing Glaze either as part of your faux finishing technique, or in the future when you decide to refresh the look of your piece.

How to Apply Real Milk Paint Finishing Glaze
Finishing Cream can be applied thickly or thinly, your preference.
You can apply it with a brush, damp sponge, soft cloth, or spatula. At Goosebay we tried all of these methods and preferred a brush application for the pieces we did. After applying with the brush, we used a soft cloth (cut from an old tee shirt) to rub away some of the color and to smooth it into the crevices we wished to highlight.
We found that on large surfaces, we preferred a high-quality synthetic bristle brush. Because this is a water based product, we found that the natural bristle brushes softened quickly and made application difficult. The synthetic bristle brush stood up very well.
The Real Milk Paint Company recommends using a brush in a cross-hatch pattern to cover walls.
Clean up is easy with soap and water.
Drying time will vary by how thick your application is, but typically Finishing Glaze completely dries in 30-120 minutes at room temperature.
Your surface will be washable after 24 hours.
