hey - Lovemebaby - what do you use to seal your letters? i used my paint pen to write names on a bow holder, and when i put on my sealant, it ran. i tried a paint on lacquer and a spray.

any tricks you can share?
I use Triple Thick by Krylon. The trick is to spray it on in thin layers instead of one big layer

Wow, a lot of good tips! I'm making one (at least bought the stuff) for my sister's baby shower gift. I had planned on using regular paint since I had the right colors on hand....glad I now know to get acrylic paint!

njzmom...I use Delta Ceramcoat Gloss Interior Varnish. I've never used paint pens, but it does not make my acrylics run. For some reason, I have had colors run (black/white) when I use the Satin Varnish and the Matte Varnish. Strange! The Delta products also have the AP rating which is important when making items for kids. I have not been able to find a spray gloss with that rating. It would make things so much faster!

I have used varnish before and youre right it works awesome but for some reason it messes up the paint from the pens. Weird hey :-)

Totally, totally agree....the artwork is AMAZING! I think it is just one of those things that people either possess the talent or they don't. One of my best friends paints sooooo beautifully. No matter how hard I try, I could never even come close to such beautiful work. I would have to do the decoupage thing that was previously mentioned. I saw where someone mentioned wallpaper. I also wondered if something like scrapbook paper would work. Regardless, nothing would ever come close to the handpainted designs.
PoshDots-thanks so much for the eye-candy!
