paint glazes for concrete leaves

bleudogJune 12, 2008

Does anyone have any good recipes for paint glazes for concrete leaves to make them look natural?

When I think of glaze, I think of pottery, and heating to high temps. I have painted, and stained, but never glazed. Have you seen this on some other leaf?

Hi Plantman56,
Yes, I have seen some wonderful concrete leaf castings using paint glazes as a finish. I am just not too familiar with what kind of paint can be used for this purpose. I also assume it would then need to be sealed.
Thanks for responding.

I basically use any of the craft paints. Also some latex house paints or spray paints can work.
I have never sealed, but bet the clear spray paints would work ok. Some have used wood stain. I tried stains on Hypertufa, but not yet on concrete leaves.
