I sprayed finished wood & glitter ornaments with clear acrylic sealer and that has worked really great. You can find it at Hobby Lobby, Michaels, and Walmart.

I've used acrylic sealer too on the records my husbands makes.

It's really good but just be sure to use in a ventilated area b/c it's stinky!

I sprinkle the glitter on after I paint it. Then I spray it with the clear acrylic.
