Antique The Finish of Painted Wooden Furniture With latex

The best thing to do is apply a antique glaze. Antiquing is the process of aging a surface to produce a time-worn appearance. Generally, ‘antique’ glazing methods can be used universally on furniture, objects, murals, gilt surfaces, floors, painted ceilings and walls to create an aged look.

The color combinations that create a ‘classic antique glaze’ remain the same whether using oil based (alkyd) or water based (acrylic) products. Acrylic-based antiquing glaze To produce an acrylic-based antique glaze, mix the colors from the ‘classic antique glaze’ recipe below. Use artist acrylic paints and mix into ‘latex glazing liquid’. Benjamin Moore makes this product and is easily found in most paint stores.

Classic antique glaze recipe: 1/5 Burnt Sienna 2/5 Raw Umber 2/5 Van Dyke Brown Mix with glazing liquid and water in a bucket. Varying the amount of water will adjust the darkness or lightness of the antique glaze.

Now, use a rag moistened with water, and wet the antique furniture surface, then apply the antique glaze with a brush. Use a rag and soften the glaze color over the surface, then take a 2nd brush (keeping it dry) and further smooth out the glaze until you achieve the antiqued appearance you want. Wipe off any ‘high’ points, like trim details or accents, leaving glaze in the recesses. This will hi-light the antique effect.
