Simulated Stiff Straight Brush Glaze Notes

Simulated Stiff Straight Brush Glaze

This method utilizes either a brush, rag or spray gun to apply the glaze to the edge, face and profiled areas of the product. The glaze is then wiped away with a dry cotton cloth, leaving the glaze build up at the desired level of intensity before wiping with a rag soaked with mineral spirits, to achieve the desired look. Wiping with the grain will leave simulated “stiff straight brush” lines in the product.

This method will alter the appearance of the original stain and wood species combination and causes the color to vary between the front and back side of the product. Due to the glazing effect, it becomes necessary to apply glaze to all refacing or sheet stock, moldings and accent components. The glaze used for this method is unique to this process and is only available on the SolidTone® colors with an * behind them on page R2-1 of our Product Specifications Catalog. Coffee and Gray Glaze colors work best.
