Using Luna Pearl Glaze Over Different Colours

Using Luna Pearl Glaze Over Different Colours

Luna Pearl is our favourite glaze to play with! Super versatile, it looks wonderful over a variety of colours, from pale blue, to yellow, to pink, to neutrals and greys.

Luna Pearl is a semi-translucent glaze that gives a pearlised finish that catches the light and turns a flat finish into something special. It looks wonderful used on both furniture and decor items, and can be paired with a range of other metallic colours depending on the base colour.

How To Use Luna Pearl

  1. Paint your base coast of premium chalk paint for full coverage. You can paint a smooth finish or create some texture, the Luna Pearl glaze will look great on both. We've listed some suggested base colours below.
  2. Mix your Luna Pearl glaze using the Luna Pearl Concentrate and Illuminator. You can play with the strengths but we tend to make it less strong when using over darker colours (e.g. over Toulouse blue), and it can be a bit stronger over light colours (e.g. over Sea Mist or a white).
  3. Brush on using your spalter brush. You can brush in one direction for a smooth, flawless finish, or brush in multiple directions to get plenty of movement.
  4. That's it! No need to add a top coat. However you could add some Metallic Glide for the extra bit of bling!
