Used as a topcoat, Clear Flat and Gloss provide a tough durable finish to protect your painted scenery from incidental abuse from handling, scratches ad spills. Used on a stage floor, clear acrylic Glazes protect a paint treatment from basic wear and tear, as well as providing the desired finish; flat, gloss or a mixture of the two giving the scenic artist complete control over the depth of the finished paint treatment. Clear Acrylic does not provide the same protection as a urethane finish. If you need a super hard protective finish to protect against moving scenery and excessive abuses, use Clear Color Coat.
Added to paint, Rosco Glazes will increase the adhesion and flexibility of the mixture. Rosco Glazes are compatible with all Rosco Paints, and many other water based or latex paint formulations. (Always test for compatibility with an untried combination.)
When using a paint with weaker binder strength, such as a casein or tempura paint, adding 1-2 cups of Clear Glaze (flat or gloss based on the desired finish) will improve both the adhesion of these paints to non-porous surfaces, as well as making the finish more resistant to scratches and burnishing. Adding Clear Glaze to Iddings Deep Colors will make the paint finish more water resistant as well.
Always dilute at least 1:1 with water. Failure to dilute Rosco Glazes may caused the medium to cloud over as it dries.
Surfaces should be clean, dry and free from dirt and grease. If applying over a painted finish, always test before hand for compatibility. Allow paint treatment to dry 24 hours before top coating with Clear Acrylic Glazes.
Application: Stir contents before use.
