Coating With Magic Glos

I'm back in real time, but am going to work with my pre-posts until I am 100%. Everything went well and I thank all of you for your well wishes. Back to today's post...... I made a mold of a shell. Lightly spritzed the mold with water and lightly pressed the raw polymer into it. After releasing it from the mold, I pushed the center in to form a bowl shape.
I baked the polymer. When it was cooled, I filled in the bowl shape with Martha Stewart silver beads.
I squeezed a couple of drops of Magic Glos into the beads and stirred with a toothpick. I only wanted them coated, not buried under resin. I did not want a shiny, glossy surface but wondered if this would work. I cured it under the UV light for 15 minutes and it came out perfect. The beads are adhered to the polymer and have a dull rather than shiny finish. I love it.
