So true! Sounds so simple, but when you are used to mixing colors on a palette - building thin layers of paint instead to get to those colors is a bit daunting. And keeping the glaze thin enough and the waiting - oh the waiting for the layer to dry!

"A glaze is simply a thin, transparent layer of paint and glazing is simply building up color by applying thin, transparent layers one on top of another, dry layer.
