Step 1. Ensure your painted substrate is dry
Step 2. Apply your glaze with a brush to the areas you would like to age( in this instance)
Apply quickly over the substrate or detail, if using dark or charcoal glaze, wipe back with a baby wipe or damp chux cloth. Coloured glazes dry darker than they appear when wet. Let your first coat dry completely so you can decide if the depth of colour is what you are happy with before applying a second coat. If you are happy with the colour, you can either completely coat the piece with clear glaze for added protection or wax/seal with your favourite product.
