Today we’re looking at the Staz-On Studio Glazes from Imagine Crafts. These water-based acrylic glazes coordinate with Staz On Colors, and add a translucent “stained glass” effect on non-porous surfaces and mixed media art pieces.
Disclosure: Samples provided for review purposes; however my opinions are honest and my own and based on my first-hand experience. I was not financially compensated for this review/video nor does the product company have any control over it’s content. Some links below may be affiliate links and I will be compensated with a portion of the purchase price- usually 5-7%. So thank you for your support!
Here’s how they are explained on the website:
StazOn Studio Glaze is available in 12 colors that match the StazOn Midi line of ink, along with StazOn Metallic Gold and Silver and StazOn Opaque Cotton White
- Creates a stained glass effect on transparent glass
- Works on glass, acrylic, metal, paper, wood and other non-porous surfaces
- Does not require oven baking
- Apply directly from the bottle or use with a variety of tools such as DoodleStix and BrushStix
- Try it with your favorite stencils
Quick tips for working with StazOn Studio Glaze:
- Shake bottle vigorously before each use
- Store at room temperature out of direct light
- Wipe nozzle after each use and replace cap immediately
- Drying time can be reduced with thin applications or by lightly heat setting with a heat gun from a distance
- Not dishwasher or food safe
- Not intended for use on items meant for extended outdoor or water exposure
Let’s take a look- and this review video is about 7 minutes long. I go through smell, texture, color swatching, and how it dries on different surfaces.
And here are a few of those stills…
I have already gotten a question from a YouTube subscriber and she asked about fabric. In a word, NO. Unless you were using it on a fabric canvas, I would not use these on ANY wearable or functional item. The sticky nature means it might attract dust (like on a lampshade), it’s not washable, it’s very translucent, and is stiff.
BUT… in my art journal, ATCs, mixed media pieces, and canvases it’s pretty fun. I seems a lot like the Pico Embellishers, but just in a different bottle and may be a bit thicker. I’m going to keep playing, though.
