Cottage Paint Antique Finishing Glaze

Cottage Paint Antique Glaze is so simple to apply, and the effects are fabulous!

Just wipe or brush on the colored gel to age a surface and/or accent ornate detailing on furniture.

This glaze allows you to easily play with the tone of the paint color. Adding the Midnight Glaze on top of Crimson Red paint makes the red richer and emphasizes the grain in the wood.

This product will offer a protective coating for light to casual use.

Cottage Paint Colour & Seal
Color & Seal

An easy way to update your old wood finish on cabinets or furniture without having to strip it down to the bare wood.

This transparent color and sealer all-in-one, offers new life to tired old wood finishes.

Use Color & Seal for many other applications.

This semi-transparent water based coating performs two functions. It colors and seals all-in-one. Color & Seal changes the color and renews the finish of furniture and cabinetry without having to remove the old finish.


Clean the surface and remove all dirt, grease or wax using “Clean and Prep” cleaner.

Gently scuff the old finish with 200 (or greater) grit sanding foam pad in the same direction as the wood grain. This will remove surface imperfections and improve adhesion. Do not penetrate through to the bare wood.

Color Seal will not hide color variations found on the original surface.

Mix well before use.


Step 1: using a soft flat brush or lambs wool applicator, apply Color & Seal in the same direction as the wood grain. Allow to dry thoroughly.

Step 2: If a deeper tone is desired apply another coat of the same color or add a complimentary color to create a multi-toned effect. Allow to dry overnight.

If a different sheen is preferred or extra protection is required apply a Cottage Paint varnish.

Available in 8oz containers which cover approximately 30-50 sq. ft.
