What is MicroGlaze?
- Acid free
Now apply a little bit of MicroGlaze on your paper like you would colour in an area. A lot of people use their fingers for applying but I actually use an old brush. Just wash it very well to remove the wax and oil and your brush is fine again!
Apply a thin layer in the same direction and let it dry. Now your paper + ink are sealed!
Check out this site for more details on where you can use it.
Where can I get it and how much does it cost?
You can get it actually everywhere. On Etsy, Ebay, arts and crafts stores. I got my glaze from an Etsy shop. And it was about $8.
And guess what! My picture that I coated with MicroGlaze was okay and in a perfect shape! The painting was literally swimming in my tea and the colours didn't bleed at all! Apart from my uncoated ones. They were all ruined.
I really like this glaze because it really protects the paper and ink from water. You can pour water on it and the protected surface works like a lotus effect. Really cool!
But in my experience it doesn't seem to give a complete protection from resin. I used Ice Resin and it ruined my paper every time. My paper got a lot of wet spots here and there. I couldn't figure out why but maybe someone has a solution!
The good thing is it works perfectly fine with Diamond Glaze!
Who would you recommend it to?
I can definitely recommend it to people who wants to protect their painting/ink from water. It works really well. This glaze will also last very looong since you always need just a little bit of it!
It contains paraffinic oils and waxes therefore it is not recommend for use by children.
I hope this review could help someone!
