Working with Glazes.

Hello Everyone
I am still playing in my Journal....This week I have been experimenting using Acrylic Glazing liquid.
Using any Acrylic paints;(it works best with transparent colours) apply with a brush or foam pad, wait about a minute then wipe off with a paper towel or a baby wipe depending how much you want to remove. I kept going until I liked what I was comfortable with.

I probably need some definition, but it is my journal and a point of reference and experimentation.
You can see more journal pages here .
You are very welcome to join in if you so desire.
Brenda ( Bumblebees and Butterflies) has organised it all.

 'Keeping a visual journal is a journey of experimentation; giving time to be free in expressing yourself and not constrained by others expectations.

Hope you are all having a great day.

Sue -
Love the dimension here of the smaller pages!. Also keen on the effect of your treatment here. I am thinking that the glaze keeps the paint open longer, which allows you to wipe some away - is that right?

Hello Lynn,
I guess so, don't know too much about the mechanics, I just paint the glaze on and wipe it off, and hope for the best!

Oooh this is soo spooky Sue. Firstly I love the effects you have achieved with the glaze, you have created beautiful distressed and grungy pages. Secondly I am sitting here with Thursdays pages in front of me and wanting to create a more vintage effect over bright colours. I have an idea in my head but this would have been perfect methinks.
Hope all is well with you.
hugs Brenda xxx
