Immediately prior to use, stir Benjamin Moore Studio Finishes Acrylic Glaze N405 thoroughly. Benjamin Moore Studio Finishes Acrylic Glaze N405 can be applied using a variety of specialty finish tools or by brush, spray, or medium nap roller. For best results, use a Benjamin Moore custom-blended nylon/polyester brush, Benjamin Moore roller, or a similar product. This product can also be sprayed. Apply generously using overlapping strokes, brushing or rolling from uncoated into coated areas. Avoid excessive brushing and rolling.
Since the final appearance of your project may be influenced by base color or the application technique, experiment first on an isolated area or sample board to be certain the desired effect is achieved. In most faux finishing techniques the application of the glaze with a brush, roller or by spray is not the final step as these application methods do not provide the desired texture. In the final step the wet glaze is commonly re-textured with a sponge, lint free rag, plastic bag, pouncing brush or other tool to create a uniform distribution and the finished texture.
