Default How long do you let your Crystal Effects dry

before mailing a card?? Just curious...I actually use the stuff from Michael's, but I would think it's the same. Seems whatever I cover with this stuff, gets mooshed no matter how long I let it dry. I'm talking a week drying time ~~~ & it's still not "solid". Is it because it's the cheap stuff?? Is it old?? I've gotten into the habit of just embossing stuff with clear EP instead, because that's dry instantly, but sometimes I want to add some glaze after I'm all done with the card.

Maybe you're applying it too thickly? Or are you in a humid area of the country?

I use it very sparingly and it seems to dry pretty quickly. (overnight?)

I use Ranger's Inkssentials Glossy Accents and it dries very fast. If I'm just using a tiny bit, it dries in about 20 minutes - if that. For a big ol' glop, I give it about an hour, and I've never had any problems at all with it remaining tacky or soft.

I didn't think I was putting too much on. I've seen the Glossy Accents at my LSS, & wondered if it was better ~~ maybe I'll break down & buy some of that!! Thanks!
