Default Bow Holder Makers

I am making an initial letter bow holder for my SIL's up coming baby shower. I have the basic idea down on how to paint it and what I want to do. But my question is... What do you seal your painting with to give it that "shiny" look?

TIA!

If you're doing it on wood you can buy a clear gloss varnish...oil or water based. Your choice.

You could always use ET lite. That's what ppl put on bottle caps. It will give it alot if dimension.

ET Lite is Envirotex lite. You can find it at Michael's as well as Hobby Lobby. I'm not sure if AC Moore has it, since I've never been to to one. We have some local craft stores that carry it also. HTH

Thanks for your replies. This looks exactly like what I'm looking for. I will have to see if Michaels or Joanns has it since we do not have a HL around here.

LOL! Just checked online to see where the closest HL is to me, and they are 500 miles away in Utah. Don't think that I would be driving there anytime soon!

Triple Thick Glaze - that is what I use when I do the bow holders.
