Dear ICE QUEEN,
I am using Swarovski crystals to glue on a GMC emblem and I am was wondering if the ICE Resin can be used to coat the crystals for a smooth finish without losing their color. I am trying to use it as say a polyurethane type coating.
Dear creative one,
Absolutely you can use ICE Resin as a sealer coat over Swarovski crystals. Because ICE Resin is so crystal clear, you can still see the shine and sparkle of the crystals through it. When using it as a sealer coat, be sure to mix up a small batch of resin and hardener (1/2 ounce) and then use a disposable plastic paintbrush to “paint” on a sealer coat (as you would with polyutherane or varnish). Because ICE Resin is self leveling, you will not see the brush
strokes as it dries.
Have a creative day!
