Default what kind of "glaze"...

I wanted to do some more personalized initial stuff. I found some plain white buttons that I could paint on, etc. however my painting skills suck, so that isn't going to work I have great handwriting, etc. however even using a pen is just not working for me.

So then I thought if I found some cute initial stickers, I could put those on there, but then I would have to cover the top of that with some type of glaze or whatever to coat it. Any suggestions? I could just go to the store to look around, but wanted to ask before I drag the kids out again for the 3rd day in a row to JoAnns

I think I would use a clear shellac.......In first grade we use to make picture frames by ripping tissue paper and sticking it to a cardboard frame with glue. I would then spray or paint them with a clear shellac. Made them shiny and totally stick. The spray kind is great, no messy brushes to clean.

I would recommend Mod Podge - it would seal it nicely. Also, it can come in Gloss, Semi gloss, etc. HTH

Thanks! It's a good thing that I'm going home tomorrow-it's not good that all of these stores are 5 minutes from my parents house They are 30 from my house at home!

I went with the mod podge as that's all I found and it looks great!

Now tomorrow we are going home so I don't know if I should zip it up and keep it in my checked luggage? I can't carry it on with me so that's all I'll have to do I guess and hope that it's fine when I get home! Didn't think of that earlier-ha!

Also, I bought some of those clay necklaces that are painted and then treated with modpodge and they tended to get kind of sticky instead of staying hard after awhile. What would be best for them?

probly dry them with a hair dryer to get the moistue out of the glue (humidity is reabsorbed by the modpodge)...then get some spray poly an spay it on to seal it...
