ILONA GLAZING PAINT / Painting instructions

Ilona Glazing Paint. Fast drying and odourless water-borne glazing paint for interior use.  iLONA Paint can be used for old and new untreated wood surfaces and surfaces that have been treated with glazing agents that do not form a hard coating, e.g. ceilings, wall panels, doors, window frames and furniture indoors. Glazing Paint leaves the grains of the wood visible and gives a surface that protects from moisture and dirt in both dry and damp conditions indoors. Glazing Paint is an excellent alternative to wax due to its good washability and easiness of further re-treatment.


iLONA Glazing Paint is translucent, but additionally to our translucent interior colour chart it can also be tinted according to the most common translucent colour charts. Please notify that when choosing a translucent stain, the colour of the surface, the gloss level of the paint, previous treatments and tinting pastes, tinting machines and differences in tinting methods can cause differences in colours.


We recommend using a lacquer brush or a levelling paint brush depending on the material and structure of the surface. The surface to be painted must be dry, the relative air humidity below 80 % and the temperature at least +10°C. iLONA Glazing Paint is tack-free in approx. 30 minutes and a new coat of paint can be applied after 2 hours.


Stir iLONA Glazing Paint thoroughly before and during use. Reserve enough paint for a large surface in order to avoid potential colour variations in different batches. Do a test painting to ensure that the colour is correct. We also recommend doing a test paint to ensure the desired opacity. Please note that the correct color of the paint is visible after the surface is dry. Always paint with plenty of paint, as excessively dry brush can cause uneven texture and gloss. Paint one board or log at a time. Take care of the painting environment and protect untreated surfaces with adhesive tape, paper, cardboard or protective film.

Preparation: Remove dust from the surface to be treated. Wash dirty surfaces with Uula Paint Wash following the instructions and allow to dry thoroughly before treating.
Colourless treatment: Treat the surface with colourless Glazing Paint 1–3 times. Sand the surface in between treatments and remove dust.
Coloured treatment: Treat the surface with Glazing Paint 1–2 times to the desired opacity. To enhance endurance treat the surface 1–2 times with colourless Glazing Paint.
