FX Australia® Product Information
FX Glaze produces many different special effects, including marble, antique and ragged finishes and is perfect for adding depth and dimension to ornate plaster mouldings. FX Glaze is a highly valued coating for home and commercial interior decoration, as it offers many possibilities for personalised, artistic ideas and finishes, is fully washable and has a high resistance to wear and tear.
Ease of application
FX Glaze can be used on all interior surfaces such as plaster, plasterboard, iron and cement.
All surfaces must be thoroughly cleaned and free of dirt, dust, grease, loose or flaking paint, and loose surface plaster. Efflorescence or mould on masonry or concrete surfaces must be treated. Flatten gloss surfaces by thoroughly sanding and wipe clean with a damp cloth. Then apply FX Lemon Tree Creek® Sealer Undercoat as required.
After undercoating, apply two coats of FX Lemon Tree Creek® Semi-Gloss, white or tinted, as a base.
Stir contents thoroughly before and during use with a broad, flat stirrer, using an upward action.
Requires one coat, using a short or medium nap roller. When completely dry, additional coats in different colours can be applied over the first coat to achieve a variety of finishes.
Marbling: For a modern marble effect, brush on two different colours of FX Glaze side by side, in a random, zigzag pattern. Then smear the two colours together, using an angled cutter brush. This is the marble base. Next, using the brush, drag a third colour of FX Glaze diagonally over the finish to form veins. Repeat until a satisfactory marble finish is achieved. For advice on other FX Glaze finishes, contact FX Australia.
Suitable for application using all standard spray equipment.
