Using Diamond Glaze for Paper Beads


I have been experimenting on different types of top coats for the paper beads to make it glossy and take on a hard shape and glass like appearance. I found that Diamond Glaze which is mainly use for setting pictures into photo charms is a good medium to coat your paper beads. It is a water based dimensional glue and dries quickly. We have a video on how to apply it to your beads.

      Hi Dorothy. Diamond glaze can be found at craft stores and the vibrance can be purchased on my etsy or janicemae.com website.

    Do you ever have problems with the beads sticking to the toothpicks after you glaze them?

    I was wondering if this glaze was also water proof. Thats been the hardest thing for me to find!

    Do you prefer to paint on the Diamond Glaze and Vibrance or do you like to dip them and hang to dry?
    Thank you for your time!

    Another great product is Janice Mae’s Vibrance, which is specifically made for paper beads.

    I use acrylic varnish (i.e. Liquitex Gloss Varnish)to coat my paper beads and it works really well. I had been told that Diamond Glaze tended to wear off but I’ve never tried it myself. Mod Podge is not a good option as it gets sticky in the humidity.

    I was wondering how to get the more rounded looking beads. I see them on your videos but the demos all show you making the more longer looking beads. Thank you.

    Hi Patti!
    You will achieve great results if you apply Diamond Glaze first and then Vibrance. Diamond glaze acts as a glue and sealer, the Vibrance makes it hard and water resistant. Thanks for the question. Janice
