Oil Glazing Custom Tutorial

It's here!
Introducing our
Oil Glazing Custom Tutorial...

Remember my vintage WWII sideboard? You can read all about her here.

Glazing with oils creates more of an Old World, Tuscan feel. . .
making the finish more rich and authentic.

Our personal favorite oils to glaze with are Dark Walnut and Classic Black. . .

Here are a few samples:

Colonial Red with medium strength black

Antique White with diluted Walnut


Turquoise with medium strength Walnut


Tuscan Tan with full strength Walnut

Nutmeg Brown with medium strength black

Antique White with diluted Walnut

Aqua with medium strength Walnut

Espresso with full strength black

Tuscan Tan with full strength Walnut

As you can see, there is a lot of versatility when it comes to oils.
There are specific guidelines to follow when oil glazing,
but if done right, the possibilities are endless. .
