Okay I just bought the dragonfly glaze, full spectrum... had an idea for a project... decided to test it on a clipboard I use a lot...,and have to say I’m not impressed... in the videos on the first coat you see the colors... and a good bit. On this if I’m in bright light I see a few specks across the whole area... and that’s after two coats!! One coat on all the videos I’ve seen gives a good bit more shimmer. (Yes, I painted my board black first, let it dry then applied the glaze... is the full spectrum just not got much too it or do I have a bad batch?
