I haven't had too much luck using glaze on my polymer clay beads so I'm hoping you guys can help me out Smiley. When I try to apply it with a paintbrush it gets all bubbly/flaky. I recently tried dipping a bead directly into the bottle of glaze and there was so much excess that it flaked up really bad and peeled off. I read on the bottle that it can be watered down, would that help? I'd really like to use glaze on my beads but I'm not having much luck Sad.

Sounds like you might be using the "Sculpey Glaze" brand of finish.  Whether you are or not, you might want to read about types of finish that can be used well on polymer clay, how to apply it, avoid bubbles, etc. , on this page:

(...click especially on Peeling and Application...)
and also in this recent thread:
