Our Finishing Glazes are No Odor Non VOC products. They are water base top coats that provide a protective, washable, tinted, matte topcoat. Finishing glaze is easy to apply, use and quick cleanup as well. They will not change the color of the surface you are applying it to. You can also paint over finishing glaze with any paint in the future if necessary.
Water-based, protective, washable, tinted, matte top coat
Colored Finishing Glazes by The Real Milk Paint Company all come as a cream in the jar. Mahogany Finishing Glaze Paste, Mocha Finishing Glaze, and Espresso Finishing Glaze have no odor and are Non VOC products. Finish glaze is a water base top coat that has a minimal to non-existent matte appearance. You can apply this product with a rag, brush, damp sponge or spatula. It is easy to apply thick or thin. You can also add more of any of the finishes years down the road if the finish wears away with use. Our preferred method is cross hatch application with a brush on walls.
When applied over our non-toxic paint or used to protect wood finishes, finishing glazes are versatile and strong. You can also use finishing glazes on new or old surfaces, and they are an excellent top coat for Real Milk Paint on cabinets or walls and trim, especially in kitchens and bathrooms. In high traffic areas you’ll find that you can really use the extra protection to make wall paint or stained wood last a long time. These glazes will still slightly wet the pigment in the paint to make it a shade darker and can take 30 to 60 minutes to dry, depending on the thickness of the application. You can then paint Real milk Paint directly over Finishing Glazes. These can be used between layers of Real Milk Paint as a barrier coat, to help make creating a distressed look easier. A Finishing Glaze surface will be washable after 24 hours. One quart (32 ounces) of finishing glaze should cover approximately 200 square feet.

“I found these top coats virtually fool-proof. It can be applied thick or thin. The best application method for ‘Dead Flat’ was cross-hatched with a brush. We did our entire kitchen upgrade to test this before launching. Very pleased with the result!”

Tips for Use
- Helps to hide or enhance moldings, trims and recessed areas on decorative surfaces. A one-coat application is easy to apply with a rag, short pile roller, brush, or damp cellulose sponge.
- All finishing glazes are ideal tinted finish after Real Milk Paint is dry. Real Milk Paint can also be painted directly over all Finishing Glaze with no Ultra Bond needed.
- Finishing Glazes do dry quickly so a damp applicator (We like a brush) can be helpful.
- You may also want to seal your milk paint with the Low Sheen or Dead Flat first. This will stop the milk paint from drawing in too much color. Then use colored Finishing Glazes on top of the clear finish.
- All Finishing glazes are great for walls, tabletops, cabinetry, and any other washable surface. The possibilities are endless.
