Default HELP ME with Glass Tile Pendants

I'm hoping someone makes glass tile pendants that can help me, because I just got 100 glass tiles and am having problems! They are the tiles like these:
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php...ng_id=31479058
I have read lots of tutorials, but none that help me figure out my problem of course. I am using E600 (as all the tutorials say) to attach my image to my tiles. But, I am getting lots of bubbles between the glass and the image. Are there any tricks to getting the bubbles out? I have tried rubbing them out with my finger, going over the back of the image with the flat side of a toothpick, and even took my wallpaper seam roller to it! LOL. But I still have bubbles. It is hard to smooth out when it is freshly applied, because the image moves all over the place and makes an even bigger mess. I've tried using a little glue and a lot of glue, applying the glue to the image and the tile, but still the same issue. Am I doing something wrong? Is there a secret trick to getting the bubbles out? Or is there a better product to attach the image that won't produce all the bubbles.

Please if anyone could help, I would greatly appreciate it. I have two orders for these and have to figure this out quick!

I started out using e6000, also had the same problem. I now use Diamond Glaze and no bubbles.

Thanks, I was afraid of that. I guess I'll have to order some, even though I don't have time to wait for shipping. Urgh! I also got some Modge Podge Hard Coat this weekend, they didn't have Diamond Glaze. I tried using the Modge Podge and after it dried, I could pull the image right off the tile. Hopefully someone can help me figure out how to work with this E6000. I have an order that I really need to get out.

I think if you use the modge podge to apply the image and then once it is dry put some ET lite on the back as a "covering" I think they would be ok.
I use ET lite to apply image and a coat on the back once finished.

Thanks Kim! Maybe I will try the modge podge/et lite combo to at least get the order out that I need to. Do you not have any issues with the ET lite when applying the image? How long do you have to let it dry after you adhere the image with it, before you can coat the back?

I use the Diamond Glaze to attach the photo from the back and then seal it with 3d Crystal Lacquer. Last thing I do is glue the bail using e6000

Any suggestions on where I can get the Diamond Glaze fast? I looked at Hobby Lobby and Michaels this past weekend and neither had it. I imagine I will have to order online, but didn't know what would be the quickest. So many of these places take forever to ship. I think I"ll post an ISO thread and see if maybe someone has one of those little trial size tubes. I just need a little bit fast, so I can get an order out. I'm trying the Modge Podge again, but want a backup in case it doesn't turn out.

I've been told that it has to do with the mixing of the ELite, make it in small batches if not already and the water to elite ratio is the key, I got tired of trying to get the combo right so switched to Diamond Glaze and still had a few bubbles so then got the glaze from sun and moon off Etsy and it's great.
