Tell Me How To Brush Glaze

05 March 2017 - 05:50 PM

I've consistently had poor luck getting brushed glazed to look good. I've tried adding CMC & glycerin, brushing a couple light coats 90 degrees from one another. I even added a couple of voodoo dances with loud growling and grunting.   :unsure:  Nothing seems to make all that much difference.

 

It possible because I've seen work that has been glazed by brushing and looks perfect.

Here Is How To Get Wax Resist Out Of A Brush

28 February 2017 - 02:42 PM

I had always been very diligent every time I used wax resist to quickly scrub out the resist. This kind of worked to make a brush flat last a bit longer, but slowly wax was building up in it. The other day I forgot to wash out the brush at all, a trashed brush, I thought. I found a quick way to make it come perfectly clean again. I took a small glass jar  and put a little water and dish soap in the bottom. I stuck the brush in it and put it in the microwave for about 10 seconds, until the water was slightly boiling. I pull it out of the microwave, swished around in the solution. The brush was absolutely clean, like brand-new, no wax.

 

I thought others might find this  discovery useful.

I found that I had a  2013 chemglaze database.There are hundreds of recipes. I extracted the recipes for you folk.  The files were so large that this software would not accept even one of them as attachments. So, I put them on google drive. The links to download these .html files are below.  Your browser should let you view them.
