CHINA LOOK; NO SMELL; EASY TO USE (AT LEAST ON SMALL ITEMS)!
I first tried a spray glaze which didn't work for me at all. I make flower arrangements on top of containers which can be used to hold candy or just about anything that will fit. The spray did not work except to make the flowers stiff so I tried American Triple Thick Glaze.
I hadn't read all the reviews but the price wasn't bad and I was desperate to find something that would shine up my pieces. I read the reviews and I must say this product does get thick but I put my brushes in water after I'm finished; wipe them some when I begin and then dip into the glaze and I haven't had a problem spreading the glaze, with dripping or streaks but then I'm painting a very small product.
The instructions say 'don't overwork' -- I have no idea what that means but I let it dry-within 20 minutes - no smell at all and then go over those flowers that aren't shiny enough for my taste.
The product does get thick but I didn't find that a problem - others agreed mixing with a bit of water would thin out the glaze and not screw it up but I prefer to use it fairly thick and just have the brush be wet enough to help spread the glaze.
The picture below doesn't really show the look of china that I get and I am very pleased with the final product. I have ordered three more jars and also I'm trying some other glazes. Those of us who can't get out to a hardware store would probably find this type glaze (or the same) at a cheaper price but time is money so....there you go!

Great For Polymer Clay Creations!
Best glaze I've ever used for polymer clay. It has a super shiny, high gloss which is extremely hard to find. Once it has dried it is NOT TACKY OR STICKY. I have used countless glazes including Sculpey brands in gloss and satin. I have also used nail polish because I was desperate! I have used a European brand as well, and the name escapes me...so sorry.
This is by far, the best for super high shine.
I have found that thinning it with water complicates application. The best way to apply this product is with a semi high quality, flat, square paintbrush. This product is extremely thick as the name suggests so when you apply it onto your projects, you might want to use very even strokes, ensuring that the product covers all surfaces. I have also found that fussing with it gives a very, very uneven surface texture. I usually dip my brush into the container, scoop up a blob of Triple Thick and quickly glaze the polymer clay. It might seem strange but I don't press hard on the clay. I sort of graze the top of the polyclay creation with my brush so that the glaze has more of a glass like impression.
If you find that it isn't as shiny or even as you'd like, you can let it dry and apply another coat. Drying time is very short which I also like.
Triple thick can be mixed with paints, glitters, and all sorts of yummy things.
Overall, I love this product because it gives a GREAT shine without tackiness or stickiness and it does not create bubbles like other brands!
If you'd like me to explain more about this product, please don't hesitate to ask.

I love this stuff!
I'm so glad I found this on 2DayDeliver, as I'm having an increasingly hard time finding this stuff in local craft stores. If you haven't used triple thick I'd definitely recommend it! I use a tiny bit of water to thin it down and glaze away with a paintbrush. It's held up over time on all of my craft projects and sticks well to almost any surface. The lid can stick to the container if you're not careful to make sure there's no extra glaze gobbed on, so I'd recommend never using the lid to thin out the glaze, use something else, or put a piece of plastic wrap between the lid and the container when you're finished using it. It'll save you the grief later on when you're trying to crack this thing open with a butter knife like a freaking safe! Shipping was great as well as the price. I'll be back to buy some more when mine has run out.

More craft arsenal
Easy to use and drys clear and smooth. Great for your final coat over glitter to give it that final shine and smooth out the roughness.
Apply a thin coat with a brush and let it dry, it does its thing and smoothes out.
Helped make a beautiful wedding gift in a short amount of time leaving the gift with a beautiful shine.

Thick, Clear and Water Based!
As far as glazes go, I love this one. It is thick going on and thick when it dries, unlike some glazes that are thick going on and microscopically thin when it dries. "Triple Thick" is really the truth, not a misnomer. Also, it has a gloss that is very shiny, although not mirror-reflective. Still, it's very, very nice. Best of all, it's amazingly easy to clean up, and you don't have to worry about dying from fumes or whatnot as you rinse your brush under running water.
This glaze can be used on most things: baked polymer clay, wood, almost any craft that needs a shiny surface. However, it is not waterproof, and should be kept dry. It didn't work when I tried to repair a scratch on an end table, either. It doesn't seem dangerous and has no scary warning labels, but don't eat it. Just sayin' There are plenty of great things to eat in the grocery and gourmet food department.
On a totally random note: this is my 500th review. I've been reviewing 2DayDeliver products for at least five years, and I hope you like them and find them useful. Once in a while I write a funny review, and I hope you like those best of all.

Good Gloss Glaze
Excellent gloss for putting flat beads on glass. Have used for other craft projects with excellent results for all applications. Good cleanup. Just make sure to clean lip of jar so you can get lid off the next time you use it.

Best Gloss Glaze EVER!
I do a lot with polymer clay and resin. I use resin mostly on flat objects to achieve a dome effect, on everything else I use a gloss glaze. This is by far the BEST glaze I have EVER used (and I have tried almost every craft glaze out there). The Triple Thick gloss glaze makes my polymer clay beads look and feel like glass, even with only one coat. This glaze seems to self level so I don't ever get brush marks. It doesn't take very long to dry, so if you feel the need for another coat you don't have to wait very long. I have also been using Triple Thick to seal and protect pictures and other inclusions before I put them in resin.
The glaze I used before only came in 2 oz. jars and was just a couple of dollars less than this 8 oz. jar of Triple Thick. It will be a while before I run out, but when I do... I will be purchasing another jar of Triple Thick!

Will dry clear, even if it looks cloudy; allow time for drying!
Love this glaze! It is thick and really glossy. It is self-leveling, so with enough coats, you can get a clear, perfectly smooth finish on an uneven surface, like glitter. The only downside is that you need to give a long time between coats - several hours, or overnight. If the finish goes on clear and looks a bit cloudy as it dries, it is ok. Leave it alone a day or two and it will be clear when it is finally cured. Used an acrylic brush and cleaned up with water. If you are going to use this over another paint or something like Mod Podge, let that final layer dry thoroughly (in the case of Mod Podge, overnight) before you layer on the Triple Thick.

Great for quilled paper projects
I use this for my paper quilling. It goes on easily, has no odor to speak of and dries in minutes. I used to coat my finished pieces in glue but found this take much less time to dry and hardens better. Clean up with soap and water. If it gets too thick (and it probably will) thin it down with water. I would recommend using only small portions at a time, not dumping a half cup of water in the jar and then trying to use it. Sounds dumb to write that but you never know. Keep the lid and jar threads clean or the jar will be sealed shut. I love the finish. Shiny and clear. I let it set up on a brush and have not been able to clean that brush since so make sure to clean your brushes while they are still wet.
