I headed straight to Home Depot knowing exactly what I needed- glaze tinted with black paint. Well much to my unpleasant surprise, they WILL NOT tint it for you. You have to do it yourself. I left with a pint of glaze, a sample of black paint, a stir stick, and nervousness mixed with excitement!
To mix it yourself you need:
1 part paint to 4 parts glaze
I used 1/4 cup paint to 1 cup glaze, but then added a little more paint because I wanted it EXTRA dark.
I was a little nervous I would ruin it, but I'll be darned if it was going to stop me from tryin'!
I just used a paintbrush, and worked a section at a time brushing on the glaze/paint mixture, and rubbing if off. You'll probably need several small pieces of rags. I used parts of an old Jersey bed sheet we didn't use anymore, it worked great!
There are 2 steps to glazing:
1) brush on
2) wipe off
It's that easy! The result is splendid!
