How do you glaze miniatures? Glazing is a powerful technique for blending acrylic paint on miniatures and models. If you’re a painting wargaming models or tabletop miniatures, such as for Games Workshop Warhammer 40k or D&D minis, knowing how to glaze is a great skill to have in your back pocket.
Glazing is superficially difficult, but deeply simple and satisfying once you get the hang of the technique. You can make a glaze from any model hobby paint, including those made by Citadel, Army Painter, Vallejo, or Reaper. Almost any acrylic paint will make a good glaze, because all you need to know is how to thin the paint properly and maintain good brush control.
