Frequently asked questions:
Q: Is Diamond Glaze™ permanent?
A: Diamond Glaze™ is water soluble when wet and washes easily with soap and water. When dry it makes a permanent adhesive, difficult to remove. We recommend covering any work surface when using.
Q: Can you mix Diamond Glaze™ with other media?
A: Yes, it mixes well with dye-based inks, watercolor, pearlescent pigments, and pastel chalks.
Q: How long does it take to dry?
A: It depends on the thickness of application. If you apply a thin layer, Diamond Glaze can dry in munutes. A layer that is 1mm thick can take up to 2 to 3 hours to dry depending on the humidity.
Q: How do you get Diamond Glaze™ out of your clothes?
A: That's a tough one. While the glaze is wet, you can wash with soap and water. When it dries, you have a permanent embellishment to your outfit. We are looking for a solvent for cleaning dried Diamond Glaze™, but at this time we recommend soaking in water before it dries.
Q: Does Diamond Glaze™ yellow over time?
A: When applied in a thick layer or exposed to prolonged sunlight, it may yellow.
Q: Once dry is Diamond Glaze™ scratch resistant?
A: Diamond Glaze™ is permanent & dries hard, but is not completely scratch resistant.
Q: What do you do about bubbles?
A: There are a variety of reasons why bubbles can occur:
- Do not shake the bottle. If the bottle has been shaken, bubbles that are generated get trapped. If it sits for a long time, they eventually dissipate.
- When applying Diamond Glaze™ directly out of the applicator tip, first squeeze a small amount onto a piece of scratch paper. The first amount of Diamond Glaze™ out of the applicator will have air trapped in the tube that can create a series of bubbles. Move over to the project you're working on without letting air back into the tip and continue to apply the Diamond Glaze™
- If applying Diamond Glaze™ with a paintbrush, it's best to move your brush slowly and in a linear direction. If you move too quickly or in a circular motion, this can generate bubbles. Also, be sure the brush is free of excess water as that will mix inconsistently with the Diamond Glaze™ thus creating bubbles.
- When you have a series of bubbles you can take a dry paint brush and pop the bubbles.
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.
