ROFL - probably nothing, since I am a "shoot the hostage" kinda gal .But suffice to say, I won't be sad if y'all HURRY IT UP a bit!

It's alright for all of you taking part. At the very least you have seen your own tiles (of only in your mind's eye still)

But poor us haven't a thing to keep us going.

Its lucky the gallery threads are full of so much great stuff really - something there to keep us all going.

I've seen about half of them. :P :P

I still haven't done my inchies - sorry! I did buy some envirotex lite though and my test items worked really well. One did overflow and I found it hard to remove off the back and sides but the finish is great.

Have a nosy at my inchie when you get your swaps back, I've used resin on there so you'll see what the effect is.

Ooops, tiny spoiler there! ;)
Couldn't wait, have ordered some resin. Hope the post is quick.

I use envirtex lite all the time . BUT it takes 4-6 hours just to set up so if you put it on a bead is will drip right off- it is better than any of the doming glazes but you have to contain it and but it stays beautifully clear and scratch & dull resistant.
here are some barrel beads i coated but i had a secret weapon to make it work.
