Default Judikins Microglaze ?

Has anyone ever worked with this? I ordered a little pot of it online. I opened the container and it looks like wax. Should it be more viscous? I've never seen it before in real life so don't know what to expect. Am I supposed to paint it on my image with a paintbrush?

Thanks for the reminder! I got this product a while ago. I've used it to seal/protect a stamped project that I knew would be handled a lot. It waterproofs too.

Here's a video tutorial using Microglaze for a resist technique:

and here's a tip sheet:

Just use it right out of the little jar as is. It's best applied with your finger tip and a little bit goes a long way! That tiny jar will last you for ages and it never goes bad. It's amazing stuff!

In addition to water proofing and protecting stamped art work, I have used it in a stamping resist type technique! WAY cool results. The stuff is simply amazing.

Do you think this would work to keep art journal pages from sticking together?

The pages I have waxed with micro glaze do not stick to each other.

And resist techniques on pages too...

Loved watching the lady from A stamp in the Hand do this with micro-glaze. What is her name, it's on the tip of my tongue?

thanks for the link!

Actually wasn't the lady that used to do the demo's for her named Joyce? She is the one I was trying to remember the name of.

I got to meet and watch both Joyce(?) and Mary Jo demo in person at a local stamp store, sure do miss that place. I miss the days of going to a stamping party at my local stamp store immediately after a convention. Both of them were wonderful stamper and I learned so much from them.

Oh how cool - just clicked on the link that Steaming provided and read how you can mix microglaze with Pearl Ex to make your own metallic rub ons! I gotta try this!

I did the faux leather coloring technique the other day and then added a couple of layers of micro-glaze so my piece would have a sheen like real leather, so cool.

You cannot rush it though. Allow plenty of drying in between layers as trying to heat set will only cause the micro-glaze to melt into the cardstock and then no more shine. Lastly I took a soft cloth and buffed the surface of my "leather".


Sorry no pics right now as I've been sick and am major behind on getting stuff done for the holidays but it is definetly something I recommend trying if you have micro-glaze.

Micro Glaze is now on Tim Holtz's radar so look for some new information on its uses. Here's a video he's done as part of some new products being introduced in the Distress line.

I just saw that too. Leave it to him to re-invent the wheel.

Yeah!!

The thought had occurred to me that micro glaze might be like so many other favorites and disappear about the time I need more. Now I don't have to worry about it no longer being available when it comes time to replace mine.

It will be fun to see what else he does with it too such as the resist techniques, etc.

I love this stuff. I've hardly made a dent in my 1st jar, and have a spare. For all of us who use it, I think Tim will have to wait a very long time for a purchase, but happy to hear he will have something similar!

I've loved micro glaze for a long time and using with my new loves Brusho & Bister it's a great resist.

Another great use is when you are making boxes and the paper is a little too stiff and wants to tear, rub micro glaze on the paper and it becomes soft enough so it no longer tears.

It's also great to put over your water based markers you may want to use to address your envelopes! Now you can really decorate and safely protect your art with the MicroGlaze and not worry about it smearing.

There are already similar products out there. I guess Tim and the Ranger name may well "popularise" but something like Renaissance Wax has been around for over 40 years - nothing new under the sun, I guess!

I agree Microglaze is wonderful stuff. I used it in a resist "Masterclass" article I did for Craft Stamper magazine recently if anyone has access to that.
