The best thing is the design of the bottle, the cap is perfect not allowing the tip to clog or the product to dry out. This stuff also flows easily from the bottle, you won't have to work at squeezing it out which is a plus in my book since I have "crafters hands" that get sore from the constant pressure I'm putting on them.
The product goes on with a white haze, but when it dries it dries clear and very shiny. It is ideal for replacing resins in my jewelry, but I've also used it to embellish paper crafts. I love the effect it has when I sprinkle glitter over it before it dries.
You'll have to give thick coats a good 24 hours to dry before handling. And of course, you cannot let anything come in contact with it until completely dry or it will ruin the finish.
This product is a fantastic tool for crafters, I'm using it more and more with my craft business, always coming up with new uses for it as I'm a paper crafter (not scrapbooker). Enjoy!
It's very easy to use. The bottle tip is perfect for pouring and everything flows very smoothly. It does come out milky white. The bottle says it takes several hours to dry but I found that untrue.
My projects took about 3 days to dry. In that time, I touch-tested them (lightly pressed) and my fingerprints are forever stuck into my beautiful pieces. Also, it began to crack at the corners. Nothing major. You can't really see it unless you're holding it up to your face and inspecting but the point is they're there.
The first layer (about 2mm thick) had a severe dip in the center so I added a second layer. Still came out with a lighter dip in the center. It's very noticeable if you're holding it parallel. It did dry clear after the first day.
However, it is now day 5 since I made it and the pieces have started turning cloudy again. It's killing the colors and not very good at all. I would only suggest Dimensional Magic as a play-around kind of craft item. Definitely not a good replacement for resin or epoxy.
However, if you're using it to fill shallow tray-like jewelry items like rings or pendants, this effect is much less problematic or noticeable. This glue dries really shiny and clear, so it makes for a very beautiful finish and it's easy to use. The bottle and dispenser tip work perfectly and don't get messy at all. I would recommend this product if you need a hard shiny THIN coat over images/artwork. If you want a thicker coat or are hoping to build up a dome, it would be better to buy round, domed glass tiles and mod podge the image to the bottom of the glass (or there are also clear epoxy stickers that mimic these glass tiles).
The photo I included shows some pins I made using Dimensional Magic as a finish: they are wooden squares, the largest is about 1 inch tall and the smallest ones are a little under .5 inches square, that I added some of my printed artwork to and then several coats of Dimensional Magic.
As others mention, it is very easy to use. No smell, flows nicely. But when drying, it creates a dimple in the center of the piece. I'm used to filling cups twice to get a nice dome, but no matter how many layers, still there's a dimple. My piece ended up distorted because of this odd effect.
Perhaps this is good for other uses, but for filling bezels it's not the thing.
I found the tip to be a big help when using this. Do be careful of blow back, when lifting the bottle, those bubbles are killers.
Though it has a blue hue while it's drying, it is quite clear, when it is dry. It does take 24 hours to fully cure.
I don't like that it has surprise bubbles that appear sometime in the drying process. That is most annoying! Just out of the blue, little bubbles came up & dried. On one other piece, that had bubbles to start, the air bubbles were difficult to remove. Popping them isn't an option, you'll have to scrape them off or lift them out.
The product went on easily enough, but isn't thick enough not to bleed out over the sides. If you don't go the the edge of the image, you can't add more later, as it doesn't blend. You'll have to cover that up or cut those parts off. So you'll need to choose which way you would like the final piece to look. Too bad, because it would be nice to coat the ends, & have a nice finished look.
Granted, I only did six 3x2" magnet pieces, & know that experience will hone my skills, but I do believe that most people are going to use this once or twice. Or know that you'll waste through a few pieces till you get it right.
Like all glue, it likes dry & hot in order to cure. It does catch dust like crazy, so make sure you cover your piece (s) before moving anything, or leaving. Do be careful not to cause a condensation or "glue drying vapor" issue.
It takes about 1/4 of the bottle to cover three 2x3" pieces. I'm sure you can use less, if you just want a glossy coat over the photo, but wonder if you could get the same results (of that), with clear glue?Read more ›

Amazing product! I've found SO MANY uses for this! Makes the most beautiful display when filling bezels. Dries clear and solid, but also has a flexibility to itPublished 2 days ago by just me
Easy to use, and dries nice and clear and hard. For some projects, I'll be replacing regular casting resin with this, as it doesn't require mixing and uses an easy to control pour... Read morePublished 5 days ago by Gretchen S.
This replaces resin, as far as coating and filling in. Great stuff! It's easier to clean up and less costly (I think). It seems to be just as hard and is colorless.Published 11 days ago by Kat Day
