Just a quick simple tip.  When using more than one substrate layer, prior to adding the top layer, use your finger to *plow* a furrow around the front and side glass down a little deeper than the trim.  Add the top layer filling in the furrow first, and finish to the desired depth.  When viewed from the outside, only one layer is perceived.  Enjoy :-)
