Exclamation Problems with Streaking Under Glass Tile Pendant

Hi! I've recently begun making glass tile pendants for Christmas gifts. When assembling, I used an extremely thin coat of Diamond Glaze to act as the "adhesive" between the photo and the glass tile. After it dried, I was left with horrible streaks all under my glass. Looking straight on, the tile looked fine, but when you hit the light, you could see all the streaks. Any advice on how to get rid of this? I also tried a layer of ET Lite, and got the same results. I need an adhesive that will not show whatsoever. Thanks in advance to all my HGB Friends!

try running it through a sticker maker... like the xyron ... just make sure it is permanent adhesive

Thank you!!! I've read lots of posts about using the Xyron permanent adhesive on these. The plan is to get one this week. I'll do that to adhere it, then use ET Lite on the back. Someone also suggested painting the back of the picture before applying resin, so it doesn't show the photo developer information. Have you had any luck with that? Thanks for your help! I have quite a bit of these to do, so I want to make sure I can get this next batch done correctly.

I'd love to hear thoughts on this, too. I tried using the xyron and the image looked dull/matte looking through the glass.

My streaks remind me of a "ghost" leftover of a bubble that has been pressed out from between the photo and back of the pendant. They're kind of long oval shaped, and I always have them when I put the photo on the back.

Recently I gave up and started using the xyron to attach the photo to the front of the pendant, and use Colores Doming Resin on the top and painted on the sides. I've tried to attach a photo of what mine look like on top
