Default Re: I need advice on Diamond Glaze

I use diamond glaze for my bottlecaps and had the same problem as you when I first started.
It just takes patience and practice. I always squeeze a tiny bit out onto scrap paper before I start to ensure there are no starting bubbles, then go SLOWLY around the outside of the image on the cap. Then I "fill" in the inside. I usually don't have any bubbles, but if I do, I get them with a straight pin. Some people run a lighter over them, but my tiny bubbles aren't phased by the heat... lol
Then check on them in a few minutes to make sure no bubbles have formed as it dries. Also, make sure you make them in an area with no airflow. Our central heating and air even will affect mine.

Good luck!
