Do you have to put masking tape on them or can you just use the stickers and cover the whole glass with the cream?

@wonderland_hippie: depends on the look you're going for. You can definitely cover the whole glass with creme after applying stickers. And remember that you can reuse the creme. Just scrape it off after and put it back in the container (that stuff is crazy expensive!).

Seriously? I've always assumed that the chemical reaction would happen and then the stuff is kaput -- does it get loads weaker on reuse? Any tips? (Because "crazy expensive" in dead accurate!)

@PimpernelSmith: It does dry out somewhat (I have to leave it on iridescent glass for fusing for 2 hours), but because you really gunk it on, most of it isn't in contact with the glass. I use a foam brush to put it on and the same foam brush to take it off and put it back in the container. Just make sure that you wear gloves and protective eyewear while handling the stuff.
