Quick question about glazing
Hi everyone! Sorry I haven't been around much, but I'm trying to work on a long, long list of house/craft projects before Thanksgiving. I realize now that most of it won't be done by then, so I'm just trying to finish what I can.
So, I'm painting a china cabinet, and I added some of those wood appliques to give it a little more character. Finally finished sanding, priming, and started on the first coat of paint tonight. I'd like the details of those appliques to stand out, but not *too* much.
I have some leftover paint from another project that's a few shades darker than the paint I'm using, and I thought of thinning it down to make a glaze. Just brush it on, then wipe it off, leaving a bit of in the carving. Will that work? This is Behr latex paint -both the base paint and the possible glaze, both in the same finish.
I don't want to use any kind of stain, or oil-based anything, but thought that a wash of something just a bit darker than the base paint would work to bring out the details. I don't want to use any kind of sealer, because I don't want to mess with the normal sheen of the paint.
Any thoughts? Suggestions?
