You don’t need a clear coat if you use a paint that has some gloss to it. I have used a flat off-white lacquer, but I wanted more of the glaze to adhere to the paint. The higher the gloss, the more glaze you can wipe off.

I would use a paint brush to get into the mouldings. Use a lint free rag for wiping the glaxe. You don’t want fuzz in the glaze. I like cheesecloth. You can control some of the glaxe in corners by using a clean good quality brush.

Maybe some of this helps. If you have other questions just ask. I find it hard to answer sometimes not knowing what your experience level is., but would be glad to clarify. I used to refinish furniture professionlly and did a lot of antiquing. (Years ago) I still use glaze on many of my stained pieces now, which is done the same way.
