wood species, a little bit of glaze will be retained across the entire surface, subtly altering the base color.
At Canyon Creek, we offer Glazing in five different colors: Chocolate, Licorice, Pewter, Suede and Vanilla. Each color reacts differently with the various wood species and especially the stain or paint color selected. It is always a good idea to order a sample in the combination you've chosen!
Let's take a look at each of the colors...
Chocolate is our most popular glaze option, as the warm, rich brown works well with all of our light to medium stain colors. Keep in mind that the darker glaze colors will be very noticeable on lighter stains, and create quite a bit of contrast. Left: CG on Rustic Maple (Cinnamon). Top: CG on Cherry (Hazelnut).
Licorice is a rich, deep black, and works well with medium stain colors and paints. Both Licorice and Chocolate are frequently paired with Rustic species and/or Artisan distressing. At left, you can see how the glaze material settles into the simulated cracks, distress marks and carved edges of Artisan 3. LG on Alder (Chicory).
Pewter is a fairly neutral, mid-tone gray that pairs nicely with white paint and darker stain colors. The sample at left is an excellent example of how glaze will bring out the grain pattern of woods such as Red Oak and Hickory. Notice the difference between the subtle tones of Pewter and the brighter, higher contrast of Vanilla, at bottom. PG on Red Oak (Mulberry).
Suede is a beautiful, warm caramel color, and quite subtle on all but the lightest colors. The sample at left shows how Suede helps blend the natural color variations of Hickory. SG on Rustic Hickory (Natural).
Dakota (left), Limoges and Prescott Solid, look great with Vanilla or Pewter glaze, as both colors help soften all that detail. PG on Red Oak (Espresso).
