Default ET Lite question

I finally bought some ET Lite today. When I mix it, how much should I mix and how much do I put on each cap? I don't want to mix too much.

Default Re: ET Lite question

you have to make sure you have eqaul amounts or that bacth will be trash
i boughtthese cups http://www.hipgirlclips.com/store/in...oducts_id=7123
& these sticks
http://www.hipgirlclips.com/store/in...oducts_id=7347 and i mix 10ml and 10 ml covers about 30 caps for me. those cups have the measurements on the side.

someone sugjested to use a 2 medicine droppers one for the white cap and the other for the blk cap but that did not work for me at all i wasnt getting eqaul amounts.
oh and once your done w/the cup never pour more into that cup toss it and get a new one it i learned the hard way i ruined about 30 caps cause the mixture wasnt equal parts... hth

Smile Re: ET Lite question

Thanks so much. I have been using the 3D diamond glaze and kept trying to use it all up before I bought the ET lite. But couldn't do it anymore!!

Do you use more than one coat? How long to leave it to dry?

Thanks!!

i just do one coat... and let it dry over night... and get your slef a long nose lighter or torch light thingy... lol cause you will have bubbles... and when your done covering your batch just run the heat over the caps not touching them and it will pop all the bubbles. You can also bloww on them but that didnt work for me... lol
once your done with that ( I cover mine i'll post a pic in a few w/what i do it) leave them alone for about 30-45 mins and go check on them again to make sure no new bubbble raised to the surface... if any did just run your heat over them again.
