I've been playing around with a new (for me) substance, Liquin. It's a lacquer-type outer coating for oil paintings, a lot of online art suppliers stock it.

Has worked well so far the handful of times I've used it on sandblasted glass pieces, but it needs to be applied carefully - I messed up one piece by trying to use a paper towel to wipe off some excess and getting little paper particles stuck on the surface (Going to need to re-sandblast that piece to fix it).

Going forward I am planning to heat up the liquin a bit in a double boiler beforehand to thin it out, and use a soft brush to apply it, to try and get a more even coverage
