DecoArt Triple Thick Glaze Product Review
As an avid crafter I like reliable products that make life easy. When the DecoArt Triple Thick Glaze caught my eye I knew it was worth a try. A shiny finish is perfect for many of the jewelry items that I create. The problem comes in when you put on a coat of finish, let it dry, repeat, repeat, repeat. Who has time for all of that?
The product itself is easy to use and a snap to clean up. Just use soap and water to clean your brush or take care of a spill.
Dipping is the reason that the wide mouth jar appeals to me. Making my own beads can be time consuming. Who wants to sit around and paint coat after coat of glaze on them? Put those beads on a toothpick and dip them in the DecoArt Triple Thick Glaze. Brush the excess off with your paintbrush. Push the toothpick into a block of styrofoam to dry overnight. Presto! Your bead has a beautiful finish with a minimum of effort.
Oh and if you think I got paid to write this article think again. I like the product that much. Look at the necklace above. The beads were purchased at the craft store. On the left is a shiny bead. That's the one I coated with DecoArt Triple Thick Glaze. The bead on the right is untouched.
It's also good for other items as well. Wood, bisque, resins, paper mache, ceramics... Take your pick. The glaze works well. Now, if it only came in a gallon size!
