Thanks so much everyone!!

Playing around here, I thought about doing this for a long time.
Scored some UTEE and do not have a heat gun so used oven.  Is this a no no?
It is on polymer clay.

Kaleesi-
I put the UTEE on before baking anything, but it went beside it, under it and permanently stuck the paper under it to it.  As I am removing the excess spilled over and hardened UTEE it started taking the mica powders off the clay.  Back to the drawing board!!  Next time I plan to bake it without the UTEE first, then add it after I put Future polish??  And bake it again?  That might keep the powder on better, but I need a better way to help with the UTEE spill over, ok ok, I need a heat gun I know!!!!  Undecided  But I bet it still spills over?  This is the first and only time trying UTEE, can ya tell?

Ok...I hope I didn't totally screw up the pink butterfly in the heart. Upon close inspection, the glitter on the back of it wasn't embedded & the edges were a little rough...
So I sanded it a little & ending up scratching the heck out of the back of it! Cry
I'm trying a little diamond glaze to see if that will help...ugh! That's what I get for rushing to get them mailed out to you! I'll keep you updated. Tongue
