Vibrance is not glue; it is a glaze and seals your paper beads to make it water resistant. It preserves your paper beads to a hard finish while maintaining the original color of the paper. It is in liquid form, milky white in color and easy to use: glaze many beads at one time by dipping it into the Vibrance solution and leave it to dry from 1-2 hrs. Because, it is not glue, the paper beads do not stick to each other; just gently separate them when applying the second coat. For best results, apply Vibrance 2-3 times depending on the shine you would wish to achieve. Economical compared to other type of varnish and sprays. Best of all it is environmental friendly, no odor, non-toxic and will not irritate the skin.
For the base coat try my Amazing Base to get an incredibly durable bead. Or, you can use white glue thinned with water or mod podge.
