AquaGlaze®

Our world famous AquaGlaze® is a slow drying, semi-opaque glazing medium which allows extra drying time for decorative finishing. Simply add 100% acrylic latex paint for hundreds of glazing colors.

AquaGlaze® is a complex, slow drying glazing medium which is used in combination with ordinary latex paint. (good quality works best.) The standard mixing ratio is to add 5% to 30% latex paint to 70% glaze. Aqua Glaze® mixture can be applied over substrates such as best quality semi-gloss acrylic latex. Aqua Glaze® was designed to work in a well sealed surface for maximum slow drying. This is why it is suggested to first coat any painted surface with at least one generous coat of SetCoat® Clear or to work on a surface coated with SetCoat®. AquaGlaze® mixtures are easily worked and are easy to use for a variety of attractive decorative finishes including marble, wood graining, rag-rolling, sponging, bagging, pouncing and stippling. AquaGlaze® has the feature of allowing one to use already tinted latex paints with no need to be an expert color mixing specialist. Just use paint store color charts when picking color glazing combinations. AquaGlaze® durability will depend on the quality and amount of the latex paint added to the glaze. Both interior and exterior latex may be used. AquaGlaze® decorative finishes should be clear coated with Aquaguard™ for increased durability for use in kitchen and bathrooms where a great deal of chemical and wear protection is needed. Covers Approximately 400 sq ft per gallon. Available in pints, quarts, and gallons.



AquaCreme™

AquaCreme™ is a clear glazing creme added to artist's colors for translucent effects. For superior transparency, add to our FauxCreme® Color™ for marbling, glazing, wood-graining, and other artwork.

AquaCreme™ is a breakthrough in a clear creme glazing medium. AquaCreme™ offers truly unique features, allowing for not only longer working time, but offering better working characteristics as well. When normal glazes are half dry, you can pull and mar the finish. AquaCreme™ offers the ability to be worked all the way to an almost dry state, allowing for dry brushing and even the creation of positive and negative patterns with ease. AquaCreme™ is slow drying for easy workability. Layers can be added with no need to coat between them. AquaCreme™ performs best when used as a system over SetCoat® or SetCoat® Clear basecoats. Best of all AquaCreme™ is low in VOCs and friendly to you and the environment. Aqua Creme™ stays put when applying (no dripping) and gives a professional translucent look for all your faux and decorative finish work. Marbling, wood graining, and antiquing executed in AquaCreme™ all take on a superior appearance when used in conjunction with FauxCreme® Color. Just add varying amounts of FauxCreme® Color to produce depth of color required for particular finish. AquaCreme™ may be used for all traditional glazing techniques.

AquaExtender™

AquaExtender™ (Master Extender) is a clear additive to increase "open time" of AquaCreme™ and AquaGlaze® . Especially helpful in very dry environments or when time-consuming manipulation of layers is involved.

Average addition for slow drying 4 - 8 oz per gallon.

Sold in pints, quarts and gallons.



SoSlow™

SoSlow™ Super Extender, an additive that greatly slows the drying time of water-based finishing products, allows finishers and decorative artists to maximize control of open time to create a broad range of effects over a desired period of time.

SoSlow™ is a very effective thinner and a retardant for color concentration products such as Stain & Seal™, FauxCreme®, AquaGlaze® and all color mixtures. The composition of SoSlow™ helps separate the color distribution resulting in a very smooth, slow drying color coat, especially useful for cabinet and furniture refinishing. In special circumstances, SoSlow™ can even be used alone as a glazing medium for the ultimate slow drying glaze. SoSlow™, available in 16 oz., quart and gallon sizes, is a translucent, low-VOC product with excellent workability over porous substrates. It can be mixed at a rate of 50% by volume into Stain & Seal™ to make a liquid stain that is easy to manage on large surfaces. Or added into metallic paint at a rate of 10% by volume for ease of application on large surfaces in hot or warm conditions.



AquaCrackle®

Size must dry for at least 45 minutes or, more importantly, until tacky. CrackleMate™ is a clear, semi-paste paint additive that transforms SetCoat® and other Faux Effects® products into crackling materials. CrackleMate™ may also be added to ordinary latex wall paint with varying degrees of success depending upon the particular brand of paint and the amount of CrackleMate™ that is added to it. Normally, about 30% of CrackleMate™ is added to SetCoat®, but more can be added to produce larger cracks. In general, do not exceed 60% when adding to any paint material. CrackleMate™ may also be used as a crackle glazing material. In this case, add about 30% to 40% FauxCreme® Color into CrackleMate™, then brush or manipulate these colors into patterns. Cracking will occur as the colors dry. Many decorative and interesting crackle patterns can be obtained by playing with your mixtures and the methods of application over the crackle size. Lizard and snake skin are some examples of what one can obtain when FauxCreme® Color is added to CrackleMate™ and then blotted on over the crackle size. CrackleMate™ is a versatile decorating material and was designed by Faux Effects® to allow for great latitude in crackle mixtures and resulting effects. The best approach to learning what you can do with this material is to mix and play. Covers Approximately 200 - 400 sq ft per gallon. Sold in pints, quarts, half gallons, and gallons.

LimeSlag™

LimeSlag™ is an integral part of the Venetian Gem® family of products. The addition of Lime Slag™ to Venetian Gem® Plaster will result in a finish of increased beauty and brilliance as well as superior hardness.

A 25% addition of Lime Slag™ will slightly thicken the Venetian Gem™ material, which may then be troweled onto a properly prepared substrate. (SetCoat® is the recommended products for preparing the substrate.) Once dry, fine sanding then burnishing will produce a radiant, durable finish. Alternatively, Lime Slag™ may be tinted and thinned with water for use as a staining or burnishing agent over dry Venetian Gem™. A thin skim coat application that is burnished when dry will produce a brilliant, polished look.

Verdigris Colors™

Produce beautiful Old World verdigris patinas every time with our Verdigris kits.

We've prepared the color scheme for you, but you control the tonal qualities. For interior and exterior and may be used over any surface. Each kit comes with either one quart of Copper or Bronze SetCoat® basecoat and three 8oz verdi colors. Aqua Verdigris Products produce a durable, natural looking, oxidized metal finish over wood, plastic, iron, etc. Aqua ™ Verdigris materials are a complete system of base coat and color materials designed to oxidize and turn chalky as the different color formulations dry out. Aqua™ Verdigris is available in two base coat metallic acrylic color choices of copper or bronze. Aqua™ Verdigris base coat material is allowed to dry. Then both Dark-Green and Blue-Green Verde material is applied at random over the entire surface using a brush, sponge, cheesecloth or spray. The colors may be thinned with water up to 40% base upon the desired appearance. These colors are allowed to dry. Aqua™ Verdigris system then calls for the application of light green Verdi material which may be thinned up to 40% water and 40% white FauxCreme® Color over entire piece. Aqua™ Verdigris is quite color fast, but extreme UV sun rays may further oxidize the color. This generally has little effect on the overall finish because it is what happens in the natural oxidization of copper and bronze. Aqua™ Verdigris system may be top coated with dull AquaThane™ to protect against UV, but this material should be almost dry misted on to prevent any possible color change. (optional) Aqua™ Verdigris colors also available separately in 8oz bottles.
