What is a glaze?

A glaze is a thin layer of transparent medium. It can be tinted to any desired hue. When applied over an opaque base, it lends depth and translucence because it permits the light to pass through it to the layer below and then reflect back. Depending on the method used for application, a variety of patterns and textures can be used to achieve a variety of results. The more layers, the more depth.
