Fabulous service from Metal Clay Ltd and the glue is sold at a very reasonable price. The product itself, though great when it first opened, appears to have a short shelf like. I've noticed air bubbles appearing in my work quite late in the drying process that leaves silver spots under glass when dried.
Diamond Glaze is a dimensional adhesive that dries to a clear glass-like finish. Use it to fill bezels, like our Funky Frames.
It securely holds vellum, Embossable Window Plastic, glass beads, glitter and many other mediums. Unlike other clear adhesives, Diamond Glaze™ is mixable with dye-based inks, watercolour, pearlescent pigments and more.
Diamond Glaze™ is great for application of glitter, beads, charms and other trinkets. It works well for filling shallow bezels, trapping pictures or smaller items.
Also, a thin layer of Diamond Glaze ™ is a perfect way to create a glossy layer that enhances and protects your work. It is best when used on thicker paper or stock.
Great product..great price..fast delivery.
I've been using this for my pendants and they have worked lovely. Really pleased with it. Beware of bubbles though, get these out with a fine paintbrush before it dries. Leaves a lovely shine.
Normally I would use resin in my pendant designs, however resin can be expensive and time consuming to use. Sometimes I only need a amount of material for photographing or use as samples and did not need it to be waterproof. It was very good at adhering the paper to the bezel but was less successful in doming the glaze in thin layers. Bubbles appeared late in the curing when I wasn't expecting them leaving a marred finish. I tried sanding it down before pouring another layer but unfortunately the "pock" marks were still there. I can see uses for the glaze in other mediums but not jewellery.
