In May of 2008 I launched the Original DIY Scrabble and Glass Craft Kits on Etsy. Since then, I've expanded upon the selection of kits involving wood tiles, resin, and epoxy clay. These kits are a fun way to learn how to make a variety of jewelry with the highest quality materials. If you're looking for a gift for a crafty friend, the kits are attractively packaged for gift giving.

We are the main supplier to many companies who make and sell glass photo jewelry, resin jewelry, and hand stamped jewelry. We are the only provider of inkjet-safe adhesives, available in both liquid and dry formulas.

Our dedication to your crafting success is what drives us to be the best supply source for your jewelry making needs…

: : : : : FAQ GLAMOUR PRODUCTS : : : : :

Glamour Glue is an adhesive and a sealant to protect paper from resin, but it's water based so not good with inkjet prints. It's not a top coat.

Glamour Seal does everything Glamour Glue does, but it's not water based so it can be used on inkjet prints.

Glamour Glaze is water based, so not good with inkjet prints. It's an adhesive, it will also work as a sealant, and it's the only one of the 3 products that is a top coat.

None of the Glamour Products are water proof. Luxe resin is best for waterproofing your pieces.

Glamour Stickies is an archival waterless adhesive to glue your paper to glass and then into the pendant tray. Use a burnisher for best results.

Glamour Dots are clear epoxy stickers with a very strong adhesive. Use them to decorate bottle caps and pendant trays, then use Glamour Stickies to stick them to the surface of your choice.

: : : : : FAQ : : : : :

Q. What is the difference between glaze and resin?
A. Glazes are water based and dry using air. They are usually non-toxic and are normally not self-leveling. The drying times vary a little, but most glazes dry in about 15 minutes if applied in a single layer. Water based glazes are not waterproof, nor are they water resistant. You get it wet and you will most likely ruin the appearance or finish.

Resin comes in different formulas, but they all cure chemically and are self-leveling. Some react to UV light, and others react to a hardener. Luxe resin will cure chemically in about 24 hours to touch and 48 hours to full hardness. Luxe resin is low odor, non-toxic and safe to use, It has a UV additive that helps protect from yellowing over time. It’s a versatile product to work with, whether you’re coating or filling your pieces. Resin is waterproof, sandable, drillable, etc.

Q. I have heard that resin is tricky to work with, but I want a waterproof finish. Can you help?
A. Yes! Resin doesn’t have to be difficult. I have prepared a professional tutorial to help you get on your way to one of the most enjoyable and safe-to-use products in the crafting market.

Q. I have heard that resin is toxic and really smelly, but you say your Luxe resin is safe to use and is low odor. Is it still a good product?
A. Luxe resin is absolutely safe to work with and is low odor. It’s still as durable as other resins and cures to a super hard non-yellowing finish. You won’t be disappointed.

If you find you have any questions not answered here, please feel free to message me and I will help you.
