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!
Thank you for the review, it's brill:)
I'm buying a new printer soon & the coloured ink is dye, so I'll probably buy some of this to protect my items.
Just curious, what are resins?
Also, will it work on text that has been printed on a dye based printer?
Epoxy resin contains of 2 separate components. If you mix them together, it hardens. With this resin you can make things like that: http://www.pinterest.com/search/pins/?q=resin just take a look at it. 🙂
Do you mean if the micro glaze works on that paper or the resin?
