HOW TO MAKE A TINTED OIL GLAZE

Applying a tinted oil glaze to a surface is an excellent way of both softening and complementing the underlying color. Buy a transparent glaze from a paint store and add color or make your own glaze.


INGREDIENTS FOR 1 QUART (1 LITER)
Mix 2½ cups (0.6 liters) turpentine, 1 1/4 cups (0.3 liters) boiled linseed oil, 3/4 cup (0.2 liters) driers, and 1 tbsp whiting.


ADD COLOR
Mix mineral spirits and color to the desired tone. Add glaze a little at a time. Put in more color and mineral spirits for the right tone.


APPLYING A GLAZE

Apply a glaze to a matte oil- painted surface. When dry, cover with a coat or two of varnish. You can work on a glaze from ½ – 1 hour. Prepare a smooth surface, and coat with two layers of semigloss paint.


1. Apply the glaze with a decorating brush randomly over an area of 1 sq yd (1 sq m) at a time.


2. Use a wide, short bristled decorating brush to spread the glaze as evenly as possible.


3. Use a softening brush to smooth the glaze. If necessary, wipe the bristles on lint-free cloth.

How To Applying Primer onto a Ceiling

Brush (Cutting In)

1. Using a stir stick, thoroughly stir the primer.

2. Load a 2-3″ wide brush by dipping 1/3 of the bristle length into the primer.

3. Remove excess primer from the brush by tapping the bristles against the inside of the bucket.

4. Starting in the top corner of the ceiling, cut in a 3-4″ wide area around the perimeter of the ceiling.

5. Brush primer from the non-primed area to the previously applied areas.

6. Reload the brush as necessary to maintain a wet edge, approximately every 4-6″.

7. Repeat steps until all ceiling edges are complete.

Rolling

1. Pour the primer into a paint tray or a 5-gallon bucket.

2. Place an appropriate nap roller onto a roller frame.

3. Dip roller cover completely into primer covering the entire nap area.

4. Remove excess primer from the roller cover by rolling onto the ribbed section of the paint tray or bucket grid.

5. Starting in the corner of the ceiling, place the loaded roller approximately 3-4″ away from the cut in area.

6. Working in a 3′ X 3′ area, roll a “W” onto the ceiling. Roll into the cut in area.

7. Continue rolling up to the edge of the cut in area, filling in the “W”.

8. Reload as necessary.

9. Continue applying, starting with the “W” technique 3-4″ away from the last section applied. Work from corner to corner, being careful to back roll the width of the roller into the last section applied.

10. Continue until the ceiling is completely covered.
