A glaze is a thin transparent or semi-transparent layer on a painting. Silks Acrylic Glaze modifies the appearance of the underlying paint layer or color of your surface building depth in your artwork. Think of it as layering transparent iridescent “stained glass” over each other.
Silks are a semi translucent mix of brilliant color, mica and other proprietary mineral particles that refract light. Clean up is easy as they are water soluble and non-toxic. Safe for ages 6 and older.
Paper, canvas, wood, gourds, silk, terracotta paper clay, air-dry clay, air-dry polymer clay, leather, walls etc.
For a very translucent look apply layers (dry in between) image on white surface. OR try the “Giselle technique” paint your image black and white acrylic (grayscale) or hand stamp an image with suggested shadows-then layer silks over to create high and low lights. Or layer colors directly over matte acrylic colors-your painting will look like it is glowing!
