Lilly Glaze

Lilly Glaze is water based so the best method is to use hot water with caution. Acetone's will work as well but they are to corrosive in our opinion.

The reason for air bubbles can be for many reasons and trust me when I say I used to deal with this issue quite a bit until we developed Lilly Glaze. While Lilly Glaze is know to have significantly fewer bubbles, it still can happen. The reasons for the bubbles are vast. These issues can be:

  • Living at higher altitudes- When you live at higher altitudes like we do here in Colorado, air rises faster and tries to escape things much quicker. That's why planes are cabin pressured so that the plain doesn't just collapse. We even have to bake food at different temperatures.
  • Not enough pressure- When you put your glass on your glaze to stick to your medium, you may have not pushed all the air out? 
  • Humidity- People living in humid areas tend to have longer dry times which means the glaze does cure as fast as we would like.

There are at least a dozen others reason and it can get frustrating. Lilly Glaze is water-based and water-based adhesives tend to have more oxygen in the chemical make-up. The only way to avoid this is to switch to a more acidic adhesive, but the problem there is that non water-based adhesives are much more acidic and cause your jewelry to erode much faster and cut it's life span in at least half in my experience.

With all the above mentioned you might think you're just stuck but the solution is real easy to me. Glass is pretty inexpensive so I will typically print the same image 3-5 times and will try to make that many pieces and will then choose the one that I think looks best and has little to no noticeable flaws. The amount of stress and time I save equals way more than the extra .60 I just spent. The only time this will not work is if you're using original art that you only for one shot at. If it's not original, save yourself a lot of frustration an calculate 3-5 pieces of glass into your work. Sometime you get lucky and they all three (or five) look amazing and you have extras to sell or use =)

All returned items must be in original shape and packaging. Liquids such as glazes and glues are non-returnable. Please note that we have to adhere to the ten calendar days so we maintain a fair return policy.

Exchanges- We dot do exchanges as it is just mush easier to issue a refund. Exchanges would require you getting a money order for the cost of shipping for the exchanged items to be mailed to you.
