in your second picture, it looks like you have a bottle of nail polish. Can you use nail polish as your water proof glaze?

The nail polish bottle was actually an empty one I filled with glue for ease of spreading the glue. Otherwise I think we have all been through the struggle of cleaning gluey brushes. :)
As for using nail polish to seal the pendants I haven't tried it but give it a shot and tell me how it works out.

I finally had a chance to try nail polish on paper. I put 3 coats of clear on a piece of paper. It did not distort the colors or smear the ink. It dried with a glossy finish which is water-repellent. The plateaus still flexible which will work well for what I am doing. I know it was not your intent to suggest nail polish in your posting but it worked out well for me. Aren't happy accidents wonderful! Thanks

It should say: the paper was still flexible

that is a good idea to use an empty nail polish for glue.
