Scumble is a transparent, tintable “glaze like” medium.
It dries to a transparent, flat silky finish that is durable, wipeable and water resistant.
It works great on cabinets and doors. Scumble can be used like traditional glaze.
It has a neutral base which allows it to be easily tinted from light to dark colors (it can be tinted with Chalk Paint® or Mixols).
You can even take it to your local paint store for tinting.
Scumble has an extended “open time” of approximately 15-20 minutes. “Open time” means you have the flexibility to wipe the product off while you are working.
If tinting the product with Chalk Paint® start with a 1 to 5 ratio of Chalk Paint® to Scumble. The mixture will thicken as the product sits. This will not affect your finish, but if you like it thinner just add more Scumble to your mix.
Play with the ratios of paint to Scumble until you get your desired color.
Brush or roll on a thin layer of untinted Scumble on your painted surface as a “slip coat” (this gives you a good workable surface). Quickly add your next layer of tinted Scumble and wipe back after a few minutes. (You do not want your “slip coat” to dry as it could crack before you add your next layer). Timing on wiping your tinted layer back depends on depth of color you would like. The longer you leave it on the more tint stays on your surface. Try a test spot to achieve your desired result. Once completely dried add Clear Topcoat Sealer or Clear Finish.
