Can u glaze over chalk paint?

One drawback to a glaze is that it will not work to seal a painted finish on its own. So if you are using a chalk type paint that needs to be sealed, you will still have to put another topcoat on top of your glaze to seal the finish.

In this way, what is the difference between antique glaze and antique wax?

A dark wax will antique a piece in a very similar way to a dark glaze. The biggest difference is that the wax serves as a protective top coat as well. I usually still do a second coat of clear wax on top of the dark for extra protection. A glaze absolutely needs a protective top coat.

Beside this, do you have to seal chalk paint?

It is not advisable. Chalk Paint® decorative paint, even when sealed with a quality sealer such as Annie Sloan Soft Wax or Annie Sloan Lacquer, will not be 100% non-porous and this can present problems with cross contamination. The surface may look clean but it may not be deep down into the finish.

Can I apply wax over glaze?

Let your wax dry for several hours (when applied over glaze) before layering a second glaze. Often it is best to apply wax the day before you will dip the second glaze. Cover the wax jar so it doesn't dry out. Clean glaze drips off of waxed areas well.

Can you glaze over stained wood?

You can use a glaze to add color effects to a finished piece of wood; however, applying glaze to unfinished wood isn't recommended, even if the wood is stained. The glaze creates unsightly blotches and patches of uneven color. You can apply gel stain over stained, unfinished wood, though, to deepen the color.

Can you put a glaze over latex paint?

Please note, I can only recommend glazing over latex based paint because that is where I have had the best success. Should still work over oil based paints but not over chalk paint that is unsealed. Also, the glaze works best on eggshell or satin finish. If you use flat paint the glaze will not be easily workable.

Can you use stain as a glaze?

Theoretically, almost any stain could be used as a glaze. However, most glaze formulations are thicker than stain to allow more control and manipulation of the color and tend to have more intense coloration, since very little glaze will be left on the surface. As with stains, some are fast drying and some slow drying.
