I bought Glossy Accents this morning to use on making domino necklaces for my grandchildren. I've watched videos and other tutorials, but haven't read how long it takes the Glossy Accents to dry. It seems a long time and one other product I read about said 72 hours, I think. I really didn't think there would be much room for anything, but I got the word CHEER, a megaphone (both from ALL SPORTS) and an arrow (for Warriors)(from BO HO GRAPHICS) on it, so I'm pleased. Planning to make others, so think I'll change the design around and change the background. I've never used Alcohol inks but maybe should try them on these. Has anyone else made these and have tips/pics to share? Thanks

Glossy Accents varies on it's drying time based on how thick you put it on. The best thing to do is put in on your project and set it way away from where you are working. I inadvertently seem to stick my finger in mine if I don't it far away from me.

I use this stuff for gluing as well as making things glossy. It is great for holding metal things, etc.

Your project will look great when it's all done.

Thank you! It's been a couple of hours and I periodically check on it. I took your advice and put it way out of reach. Not too bad for my first try. BigGrin

I would let it dry overnight just to be sure. Smile

I agree, it takes several hours for Glossy Accents to dry. I usually let it sit overnight, too. It is an excellent glue when you want something to stick immediately and FOREVER! One word of caution...don't get it on your fingers!!! It doesn't wash off! I am not the neatest 'gluer', and have found out this little bit of info...the hard way!Flapper. I scrub the stuff off my fingertips for days afterwards!! LOL

OK... here is a picture of what I've done so far. The Glossy Accents part turned out really nice for the most part. I got carried away using some of the borders from G45 Curtain Call and may just use those for magnets. I haven't really decided that yet. The CHEER, VA, and Eiffel Tower are my favorites. I put the bail on them for hanging the necklace part, but am still a little leery of it holding these dominoes. They're jumbo size (ceramic?).

Sorry...the picture would not post. Will try again later.Angry
Network path not found....any suggestions?

You are a tease!! LOL. I can't wait to see what you've done....sounds very, very interesting. I would also like to see the effect of the Glossy Accents; don't think I've ever bought any of those.

Not intentionally...tried again and it just will not work. Glossy Accents is a liquid used to put over images which gives a dimensional look to them. This is my first time using it.

Would Mod Podge give the same effect.....layer/let dry completely/sand down/layer/let dry completely/sand down, etc. Some put on seven or eight layers for effect.

I love using Mod Podge. It dries hard/clear and is very durable. I have some glass blocks I have Mod Podged tissue paper, cuts from Cricut, etc., on that I've had for ten or more years. I store them away (after Christmas). The Mod Podge has remained on them....I can wipe off with cool cloth from time-to-time (every couple of years). They still look as good as the day I did them.

Possibly...not sure. I don't think I have ever put more than three layers of MP on anything. I may try one just to see if it has the same effect. I love using MP too.

I just did up a bunch of dominosBigGrin Some are ornaments and others are magnets. I used Glossy Accents to glue down the flat backs on the magnets and then covered my paper images with it on the ornaments.
Alcohol inks work very well on dominoes as do the mixatives.

I will post some pictures later if the MB cooperates.
Usually path not found means the Mb is having some sort of problem.
You can upload your pictures to a web site and then post them on the MB.


I also set mine aside and leave overnight before I add the magnets or the loops on top.

Here is a project where I used Glossy Accents. I love the shine when it dries. Unless it is a very thin layer, I would let it dry overnight. This was for a swap on the RAK thread. Go check it out. There were some great projects this round.
