I tried this with a few jewelry projects and it looked pretty good, but after several weeks of curing time, I could still make an indentaion in it with my fingernail, and unfortunately a jewelry item was placed on top of a pendant with this glaze in my jewelry box and there are permanent marks in the glaze. Maybe it has other good uses, but not for jewelry!

This was easy to use. I poured on and moved the frame around to fill in gaps The sparkling images and crystals show through. Great product.

Not a bad first time
This was my first time using any kind of adhesive in my beading projects. It created a very beautiful stained-glass effect when placed over seed beads. The problems I had is that it never got very hard and I had to apply many layers to get the desired look. Not bad for the first time around, but I think I will try some other adhesives before picking my favorite.

I purchased this when it was first offered but did not feel comfortable using it. I watched the instructional video that was helpful. I also read the reviews and some of them made me more anxious. I finally was brave enough and used it with an oval pendant and the Miyuki mixture and the end result was beautiful and I had no problems with it drying and all the beads were well glued down and none fell off. I would recommend this and reassure people that it isn''''t difficult.

I have used this to make scrabble tile pendants and it has worked great! Others have said it didn''''t harden but it hardened fine for me. Smooth, dry, and not sticky by the next day. Dried clear. I made 50 pendants and still have a nearly full bottle!

This is a very nice product, i used it on a pendant with a picture off my daughter and it came out really nice. You have to fill it about 3 or 4 times and allow it to dry for quite a long time in between.

Not what I had hoped
I had used this product to get the glass like finish on a pendant that I had created. It would look beautiful when still wet but never dried completely and never got really hard. It was a bit tacky and when rubbed against other things my pendant was damaged.

Not sure yet
I have made several pendants with DG3 and I''''m not quite sure I like it. I get out the bubbles with a brush and cover it and never ever touch it for 3 days yet there are always bubbles and raised areas on the surface and dust particles as well. Maybe I need more experience but my pieces have never looked as great as those I''''ve seen.

I have used this several times while working with seed beads and pendants. It holds the beads very well and drys very quickly. Very easy to use and has a clear finish to it. No problems with beads falling out of pendant after wearing. Going to try it next with clay.

I like this gel - my only problem is air bubbles - I sometimes have a hard time getting them out but it could just be my inexperience.

Not what I expected
I did not like this gel in comparison to other resin and glazing materials I have tried. It took a very long time to set (weeks) and when it did finally set it still never achieved a hard surface. It set murky and not completely clear, and on many of the pieces it absorbed the color or metal of the pendant and basically ruined the whole piece (my copper pendant turned the gel blue and the image is almost completely hidden. I had to scrap about 8 pieces and start over because of this stuff.
