I painted my fireplace mantle with a tan colored oil base paint. My intent is to glaze and/or distress the mantle using glaze. I hate the oil based glaze I bought….Is it possible for me to use a water based glaze over an oil based paint?

You must use an oil base glaze over oil base paint. The water based glaze won't stick and could, most likely will, flake or peel.
