J H Ratcliffe's Transparent Oil Glaze is a recently reformulated linseed oil based medium for producing a glaze or scumble by the addition of stainers for broken colour effects such as wood graining, stippling, rag rolling, dragging, toning and wiped effects as well as graining and marbling. It is not intended for use as a clear protective film. Due to its traditional formulation it has a natural tendency to yellow slowly on ageing and in conditions of darkness, or, yellow rapidly at elevated temperatures (e.g. radiators, hot water pipes).
8/11/13 - Note: Ratcliffe's have now discontinued this product, it's been replaced by Polyvine Pre-tinted Traditional Oil Scumble, instead of the Ratcliffe's product. It's actually a much better product, so we think you'll be very happy with this substitute.
We have introduced a new product Polyvine Traditional Oil Scumble which uses a traditional solvent-borne formulation with extended drying times.
Use Ratcliffe's Kolorit Universal Paint Stainers to tint, or other good quality stainers such as artists oil colours, but it is advised to avoid the lower cost artists oil colours. You should ensure that any stainer is suitable, lightfast and unaffected by acid conditions (as the glaze medium is slightly acidic).
