. A few tips on glazing from my experience…

~You must let your base coat dry really well. If you are using acrylic paint or spray paint that is usually only an hour or two. If you are using latex paint you should wait at least 12-24 hours.

~Your base coat needs to be at least an eggshell but I would recommend semi gloss or satin for a smoother finish.

~Once you have painted and wiped the glaze off, you can’t go back over it. It has a glue base and will pull all of your previous glaze off and you will then be angry…trust me.

My final step was assembly… I attached the cute little knob to the wood oval and added a picture hook to the back. I then used a scrap of fabric from an old shirt to make a tie… stapled the ends to the back of the square and hung it on the wall. I am so pleased with the outcome. This little shanty cleaned up well.
