Tina, try this.....

Hello again:

The post is one by Wendy on 9 Dec. I copied and pasted the following, which you should be able to copy and past to your address line to be able to jump to this post:

To try to answer your above question, I'm not an expert here, but I believe glazing refers to actually baking the enamel finish onto the underlying substrate (cast iron, steel, ceramic, etc), which is how the tubs come from the factory (or how tile are glazed). This is not to be confused with 'glazing' as it refers to installing a window pane and holding it in place with glazing compound (sometimes construction terms can get a little mixed up :-)

Refinish means simply to prepare the old finish (by sanding and cleaning and perhaps etching) and then applying a new finish on top.

Hope the discussion below will help you better understand how to refinish your old tub. Wish we could hear back from Wendy on how her refinish went.
