Silver Product Information


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.

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.
