I am planning a cute idea in my head that I need a frame for, and I want the frame red. So I ran to all a dollar and grabbed a wood frame. Here is how I painted and glazed it:
What you will need:
- Frame - You can use any size you want, the size I used was (8x10)
- Spray Paint - I used a glossy Cherry Red
- Glaze - I used a black glaze
- Clean damp towell that you don't mind getting stained
Step 1: Take off the back cardboard piece and glass and paint with your spray paint. I didn’t prime or anything – just sprayed on two coats.
Once the paint is dry rough up a few edges with your sandpaper.

Now comes the glazing, which I know frightens many people away, but it is so cool and easy to learn! If glazing is something you are not sure of don’t let it keep you from doing this project. It will still look great without glazing. I just happen to like the look the glaze gives it. If you want to try glazing it really is not too difficult.
With a black sponge brush wipe on glaze
With a damp towel wipe off glaze.
If there are a couple of places that you think have too much glaze just rewipe with your damp towel. Now repeat this until you have glaze your whole frame.
