A scumble is related to a glaze in that it is a film of color laid over another dry paint surface. Unlike a glaze, a scumble is usually semi transparent or opaque, thinned out with a scumbling motion of the brush. Scumbles are usually characterized by a pearly or smoky optical effect.
Scumbling is great for making fog.
