I'd encase them in either gel / acrylic that would look great !!

Hi hun

The best way to do this is on the free edge when sculpting use a very paper thin layer of clear acrylic place the mylar very quickly on top before it sets.

After you have done this incase the whole lot with clear acrylic the file buff etc as normal you can also add colour/glitter acrylic to the design aswell.

hope this helps:hug:

The best way is to just SLAP it one and dont try to be uniform.

Then you will have fab results

your regular product, gel or l/p acrylic or i suppose fibre/resin. whatever you would normally use for your overlay.
