Vibrance - Paper Bead Glaze, by Janice Mae is specially prepared for paper beads. It is not glue; it is a glaze and seals your paper beads to make it water resistant. It preserves your paper beads to a hard finish while maintaining the original color of the paper. It is in liquid form, milky white in color and easy to use: glaze many beads at one time by dipping it into the Vibrance solution and leave it to dry from 1-2 hrs. Because, it is not glue, the paper beads do not stick to each other; just gently separate them when applying the second coat. For best results, apply Vibrance 2-3 times depending on the shine you would wish to achieve. Economical compared to other type of varnish and sprays. Best of all it is environmental friendly, no odor, and non-toxic and will not irritate the skin. It comes in 4 oz. bottle.
