Primer red and glazed tables

February 1, 2015

Here are some tables that I painted primer red.  Sorry I forgot to take before photo's - common problem.  They were your standard dark wood 1980's style.  Because they had a bit of shine to them I applied some clear shellac first.  Then I painted on 2 coats of primer red.  When that was all dry I started glazing.  I used Valspar antiquing glaze.  I love how it darkened the red and gave it the black, rich tone.  It was applied in 2 menthods - with a brush and with a rag.  You want to brush it on, working in long even strokes, and then rub that area with a rag, rubbing in the glaze.  If you haven't worked with glaze before it does take some practice.  Don't give up though.  Glazing gives a unique look.  There are so many different types of glazes too.  After the glazing was finished I applied wax.  No normally you don't wax over glaze, but in this case I did because I wanted it to be even richer and deeper.  What was used was a mix of Annie Sloan dark wax and a bit of clear wax .
