I am staring a new project with the bottle caps.
Which of the glazes is best for that?? Thanx for the help crafters.

I use both but I prefer 3D Crystal Lacquer for several reasons:

- Almost no air bubbles, if you get one they are easy to get rind of - Diamond glaze is a pain
- Thicker than Diamond Glaze so it does not run everywhere.
- Once dried it looks better than diamond glaze to me.
- Dries faster

A bit of a hijack here, but not off topic...

Can you use either of these glazes on polymer clay as well?

How is the durability of these, are they pretty tough?

I'm with heather (waves to heather)

resin is the way to go, the glazes are not as durable or professional looking, can't be applied as thick, don't look as glassy, can crack, etc....
