Today For A Little Something Different

Hi Everyone! Today I am doing a little something different for you. I am not bringing you a "finished project" but rather sharing information on something that has been asked about our Glaze And Glue. So I am going to share the testing and show you how it went.
The question has been asked as to whether you can use Glaze And Glue with fabric. So here are three different types of fabric I used for testing. The blue one is a very thin lace, the off white piece is a piece of eyelet fabric and the third is a little bit thicker piece of trim.

For the purpose of testing I am using medium square glass on all three fabric pieces. I have applied the Glaze And Glue to the flat side of the glass as I would normally do for paper and placed the glass on top of the fabric. I did apply more glue than I would have for paper. Big lesson here, the drying time is much longer for fabric. Whereas with paper when you apply pressure, you can feel it grip within a moment or two. With the fabric I kept applying pressure and the fabric would come right off. I ultimately set it aside to dry for a little bit (more like ten to fifteen minutes) and came back to it. But, once it had dried, it really held well! These next three pictures are during the drying time.

This next picture shows the three samples once dry. You can see they have that same magnified clarity as paper images once dry and that is pretty awesome looking.

I then trimmed around the pieces and am showing you the front and back of the dried samples below.

Did you find this imformation helpful? Do you have questions for us? Do you have followup questions on this information? Please feel free to leave questions and comments below and I will be happy to answer them for you!
