Micro Glaze


1 Micro Glaze is a fixative. Use it to waterproof porous surfaces like paper, wood and canvas.
2 Use Micro Glaze as a mask. Coat the image then stamp over it with a big background or paint over it with diluted acrylic or watercolor.
3 Stamp with it for an excellent resist.
4 Make metallic rub ons by mixing equal parts of MG and Pearl EX
5 Take off the remaining paper from a transfer
6 Coat inkjet prints with it to completely protect them.
7 MG is an perfect buffing agent for paper, leather and much more
8 Protect journal and altered book pages from sticking to each other. A very thin coat will do over acrylic painted pages.
9 Use with Pan Pastel or chalks to create an oil pastel look. simply color then carefully coat over the area with Micro Glaze. You can even add your Micro glaze mad metallic rub ons over the top for an incredible pearly look.
10 Use MG to protect your Copic markers and retain better layering of marker color!
MG over any altered book pages to protect especially on foiled or encaustic collage

MG works great with Pan Pastel to increase the color intensity and set the pastels.

MG keeps acrylic painted pages from sticking to each other.

Here I used Copics, Pan Pastel and Micro Glaze on three Carmen's Veranda Salvador Dali images
