Our Glazes are excellent for faux finishes on furniture or walls.

With exceptional ease of application with a long open time, our glaze delivers the performance of a professional finish that everyone can achieve!

Dries to a soft matte finish. For high-traffic areas, we recommend a topcoat.

Antiquing Glaze is lightly tinted to a rich brown for the perfect antiquing look.

Our Clear Glaze can be custom tinted with our paint or metallics.

Maintenance/ CleaningClean as required, with mild soap and water.


You can apply liberally with a brush of your choice, then gently wipe back with a lint-free cloth to achieve the desired effect. If there are detailed crevices, this is where the glaze will really show its glory! If too much force is used, it may reactivate the paint layer below as the glaze has high water content.

For areas with lots of water contact, like kitchen cabinets or table tops, allow the glaze to dry for 24-48 hours before applying a top coat using our Tough Coat or Gel Stain.

TIP: If adding tint or paint to the clear glaze, test to ensure your desired pigmentation is achieved prior to application by doing a test patch.


  • You could use a damp cloth to remove more glaze.
  • The clear glaze can be tinted with any of the Fusion paint colours, including the Metallics!
  • If you glaze large flat areas that will get washed and wiped, add a topcoat to protect your work.

As with the Fusion Mineral Paint, the glaze is also matte unless you add one of our Metallics for some shimmer!

The glaze has an extended open time giving you plenty of time to work with it, so dry and cure time is slightly longer than our paints. Dry time is typically 24-48 hrs and cured in 28 days.


You can use our glazes for many faux finishes, including faux wood grain, ragging, striated patterns, and so much more.

The Glaze can also be used to give our paint a little longer open time and works well in our Metallics.

It can also be used to create the same effects as our waxes can but have the added bonus of being water-based.

Can you make a custom coloured glaze for me?
The only colours available are Clear and Antiquing, but you can mix custom glazes very easily! Just add a couple drops of paint to your Clear Glaze to give it a brand new hue. We use about 1 part paint to 3 parts glaze.

What colour is the Antiquing Glaze?

The Antiquing Glaze is a brown colour, pigmented to the perfect colour for ageing.

How do I use Glaze?

It is so easy to use Glaze! Brush or wipe on, being sure to get it into the details and crevices that you want to accentuate. Then wipe away the excess until you are happy with the look! The glaze has a really long open/drying time, so you have a lot of time to play around with it and get the look you want.

Why isn’t my Glaze drying?

Our Glaze has a really long open time – meaning it takes a while to dry. Depending on your humidity, it may take up to 24 hours to dry completely.
