11. What are appropriate materials to enclose with Amazing Glaze?
When choosing materials to enclose with Amazing Glaze, keep in mind that the materials will be heated.
- Polymer clay, fabric and printed images such as those from magazines work well, as do photographs and crafting paper. (If the fabric or paper appears transparent when wet, it will also appear transparent when set in Amazing Glaze.)
- Images printed with an ink jet printer and other water-soluble inks will bleed.
- Mica glitter, glass glitter and Art Institute polyester glitter will work. However, other brands of polyester glitter may dissolve, bubble or run during heating.
- Any materials with a matte finish will not appear matte once set in Amazing Glaze.
- Organic items such as leaves and flowers will bubble and boil when set in Amazing Glaze. If you wish to use them, make sure they are thoroughly dried first.
- Plastics and wood are not recommended for use with Amazing Glaze.
Remember to keep a close eye on the materials as you heat them, as overheating can cause scorching. We recommend using copies of photos or artwork rather than originals.
