I made this nifty little ring..
I used some of this Aleene's Paper Glaze stuff over the top since its supposed to dry 'clear and glasslike"
it dried, it domed it did everything I wanted except dried clear
but somewhere things went wrong.. anyone have any ideas?  Sad

The only thing I can think of is heat to help clear it up. I know that sometimes helps with resin....but not sure it would work very well with Paper Glaze. I would try just a hair dryer on VERY LOW setting for a bit to see if it helps at all. Otherwise, my only advice is next time use either resin (which sounds hard but isn't too bad if you get the right kind) or 3-D Crystal Lacquer Glaze. (this website is just to give you an idea of what it is, I order it off of Amazon for cheaper.) I use that stuff all the time and it always works great and dries clear.

That looks like a pretty thick coat of glaze.  Maybe it's just not dry all the way through yet.  You can probably just peel the paper & glaze out of the setting & start again if it's a lost cause.
