  • Advice on glazes for paper (non-toxic, fast drying) please

    Hello. I make junkmail jewellery and paint it with clear nail varnish. This dries quickly, strengthens the bead and gives a nice shine but I think it's probably on the toxic side. 'Greener' nail varnish is pretty expensive.
    So can anyone recommended a quick drying varnish or glaze? it needs to be quick drying as I run workshops where people take stuff away with them, hence it needs to dry in 5 min or less really.
    Something acrylic?
    I came across someone using something called Diamond Glaze but it is also a glue, so not appropriate.
    Thanks for any help.

    i'd say resin but it takes ages to dry, or spray varnish, they dry pretty fast! plasticote

      I think diamond glaze may work even though an adhesive as it dries clear and you depending how much you use, it should dry fairly quickly. Here is a link to their FAQ that speaks to these points: http://www.diamondglaze.com/dg_faq.html

        Thanks. I will give it a go! If it doesn't work, I'm sure I'll find something else to use it for...

          I'm not sure if it's what you're looking for, but I've heard that they sell clear acrylic spray...

              Found this on google: http://paperbeads.org/using-diamond-...r-paper-beads/
              They likely have other options as well.

                Hi

                I'm new. This is my first post.

                I used something called Triple Thick spray varnish on a paper mache project. It was amazing! Very quick drying and very glossy. You could try that one. There is a brushing version but it takes longer to dry.
