Default Glaze Finish/Appearance?

What product is used to create a glaze appearance over portions of a stamped image? I do not want the cracked glass look, but a nice glazy sheen on portions.

You are nto going to believe this, but I have been using clear nail polish and also polish with a bit of glitter already in it...but???
Anyone know of a product that works better than that? LOL

What is used on water for reflections to add an appearance of water demission?....or on petals of flowers?..not a lot of glitter...just shine and glaze is what I am searching for...suggestions...??



Thanks!

Glossy Accents by Inkssentials is one product.
Crystal Effects by Stampin' Up is another.

Default Glossy Accents??

Where can I purchase this in person?

I checked on line and the S&H is more than the product itself! Yeah, like that iwll happen...

So, what stores can I search out in person?...nothing like a little retail therapy!

Thank you...

Did you try RubberNecker? (very trustworthy company)
they have Glossy Accents and I find their shipping very reasonable.

(of course I don't know where you need it shipped)

Michael's and AC Moore have the Glossy Accents I imagine Hobby Lobby would too.

Also another vote for Crystal effects from SU.

You can also use Diamond Glaze. It's thinner than Glossy Accents and can be applied very thinly.

Plaid also makes a Gloss finish that works well. They also have tinted ones. I especially like the sepia toned to make "antique" accents.

Another thing you can do is use a VersaMark pen and "color" the area(s) you want to be glossy and then use clear embossing powder. The VersaMark pen is clear but sticky and the EP adheres to it and then melts with your heat gun. A couple more steps than using Glossy Accents or Crystal Effects but it's done as soon as you heat it, you don't have to wait for it to dry.

That's a GREAT idea!! had never thought of that before...

I was wondering also if they make a CLEAR (color) stickles? Would be easy to apply on SMALLER areas maybe?? where you just needed a LITTLE bit...dunno?

Just another thought or suggestion ??

Hello, I have a question regarding the application of Diamond Glaze. How can I apply the glaze without smearing my ink? I let the ink on the stamped imagine dry for a while then I put on the diamond glaze which is not as easy as I thought, but noticed that some of the ink is smearing. Does anyone have a tutorial or instructions on the correct way to apply the glaze.

thanks
Marilyn

GOD BLESS US ALL

Default Smearing Ink

I got this from the diamond glaze website: http://www.diamondglaze.com/dg_faq.html

Q: How does one avoid the ink bleeding when using Diamond Glaze?

A: Diamond Glaze is water-soluble. Colored pencils, as well as permanent and alcohol inks should work nicely. Basically anything that is not water-soluable.


Hope this helps!

Teri

There are Glaze Pens that you can use for a shiny look. What I always use though is Crystal Lacquar. The bottle lasts a long time. I use it on balloons on cards, grapes, as a rain drop with rainy cards ---

All these ideas are great.

sometime to give a whole piece a shiny appearance I versamark the whole surface and apply EP to the whole thing-like when you want it to look like a window-don't have to go all the way to cracked glass!

I purchased my bottle of Glossy Accents @ Archiver's. Just an FYI for some of that "retail therapy" you talked about (wink)!

Mr65 said something about smearing when applying gloss on top of a stamped image...I find that if I don't touch the image itself with the nozzle of the bottle, just let it drop out of the nozzle- that way you are more likely to have a smooth and clear image. I use a dressmaker's pin to pop or move to one side the bubbles that occasionally appear. I use Diamond Glaze the most as I work on game tiles, although I have used Glossy Accents with the same results.

Lightbulb Here's a thought about simple glaze finish

Have you considered just plain old Future Floor Polish?? Works like a charm for me. I have used it on paper as well as dominoes. It's relatively cheap, and a bottle can last a very long time. I actually have a waterbrush that is filled with Future...sometimes I use it with my Lyra crayons to prevent smearing, and have used it with my prismacolor colored pencils for blending. Hisses, Rockin Robin

I have a question that I shall ask right here. How do you apply any of these products (and I have 3 of them) over a larger area without getting streaking or bubbles? I've used a brush to put some on a balloon, but it wasn't nice and even.

Try one of those small foam brushes. You can dab the product on with this and it shouldn't streak. Don't dip your brush in though, pour a small amount on a paper plate and dab most of product off before you apply a thin layer. it's all about not putting on too much product.

Close to my heart has "Liquid Glass"
Stampin up has "Crystal Effects"
JudiKins has "diamond glaze" (I find it more watery, but that could be a good thing. :0)

It's usually called dimensional adhesive or clear craft lacquer also

I use it to make a watery-look or shiny petals or leaves, to glue on beads, glitter, buttons, little paper pieces... all kinds of things. I have 5 bottles, lol.
