A glaze is a semi-transparent color applied over the paint for added depth and dimension. The glaze is wiped off all flat surfaces but it creates a darkened highlight along profiles and corners to accentuate the details of the door. The glaze adds a subtle wash of color to the base paint color, darkening the overall color slightly and creating a subtle brush-stroked look. Glazing is an artistic, hand-detailing technique that will exhibit subtle variations with each application. Rub-Thru is available as an option for any Painted finish and when it is specified, corners and edges are sanded to reveal the underlying wood to create a time-worn, antiqued look.
Please note that wood naturally expands and contracts with seasonal changes in temperature and humidity. As wood moves microscopically at joints, this movement will be more apparent with painted finishes than stained finishes and will look like a small fracture or seam at the joint. This is a natural characteristic of painted finishes on wood.
