Oh, one of my fave things. I use gallons of the stuff, Cathy.

It makes a fantastic glue for one thing.

You can cover die cuts/letters/numbers with it to make them stand out on cards and LO's.

If you have an image, you can just cover a part of that image with it to spotlight it.

When it's dry, you can freeze your bit for a while and gently bend it to crack it giving you a cracked glaze effect. (this works brilliantly with triple embossing or UTEE too).

You can add glitter to it and apply to your card too (although that's something I never do, 'cause I hate glitter, lol).

If you have any reinkers, you can add a drop to some glaze to make a coloured one.

Quite a few of my recent cards have lettering which has been glazed with glossy accents! I love the stuff as well, great for sticking on gems and flowers!

I learned this weekend that you can drip a little bit of alcohol inks into it too, to colour it. I, like Lorraine, use it for everything!

Kt, I use those tiny plastic medicine bottles that tablets come in. They have good firmly fixed screw tops too, which is a help. Only trouble is they need a label as you can't see what colour is in there. If I only want a tiny bit of coloured DG, then I mix it on the side of a paper/polythene plate - you know, the disposable picnic type.

Use lots of it here but for adding a bit of detail to cards,

I've just discovered it this week too, I used it to fill in the stamped image glasses on santa, so it looks like his glasses are real.

Love the idea of colouring it with inks. Will it work with the alch inks as well. I only have stazon black re-inker !!!!

Oops ignore that, despite the fact I read all the posts it still didn't sink in that Patty had already mentioned AI. Think I many just have to have a go.
