Polymer Clay Glazing Fail

Hello My Dear Friends!  I hope this finds you well.

My last post was about how much I enjoyed playing with polymer clay, right?  Not so much right now!  I have been experimenting with glazing finishes to no avail.  

See the very tip of the strawberry - thats where the glaze accumulated- yuck!.

I've been searching online, including YouTube and watching endless videos and reviews of this and that product.  Well, the three I have used have not worked for me or at least have not performed to my satisfaction.  I want to have a very shiny, almost glass like finish on my polymer clay strawberries.  

This is my homemade drying rack.  Works good just wish the glazing products did.  They do look deceivingly shiny, it's the flash though.

These are the glazes I've used - Yup that's Pledge floor care.  One of the people I YouTubed recommended it.  Her charms looked very nice and shiny, so I thought what the heck.  Not for me though.

Any ideas or glazing product recommendations for me?  I so much want to get these done soon so that I can finish a gift for a blog friend.  I did pick up a 2 part resin today at Michaels and will be trying that soon.  

I'll keep you posted on my glazing dilemma and if you have a recommendation for me by all means, please leave me a comment.  

Glaze you later, peace!

Creating for the greater good.
