This type of finish associates itself with a layered type of application. In most scenarios, a base-coat is applied to the entire surface which is being refinished. If the base-coat is too opaque to acheive the desired finish, thinning is done in order to create greater transparency and visual texture. Following the base-coat application, layers (usually 1-3) are applied over top "dragging" through and over the initial coating. The products used for the secondary coatings vary greatly, from clear lacquers to stains, to thinned paints, etc. Glazing is popular finishing technique for kitchen cabinets or bathroom vanities.
