Not very craft savvy. Please help.
We have a wooden Ottoman tray that is covered with rings from water glasses. We bought some fun scrap booking paper to cover the bottom in order to cover up the rings/make it a bit artsy.
We layered a bit of modge podge on top of that, but... it isn't the sealant tha we're looking for: you can still feel the texture of the paper, and some of the paper is curling up from the edges.
Ideally, I feel like the entire thing would sit under 1/4" of ... like... clear glue gun glue -- you know, have a bit of a gummy surface over the paper. Feasible? Suggestions for our project?
The ottoman tray has sides that we could pour something in there and it would settle evenly, if such a thing is the best solution.
We are doing the same scrapbooking paper/collage thing on the t.v. surface of our bedroom entertainment center. Here, there are no sides/rims to pour anything into, but we'd like to figure out a nice sealant there, as well. Would this be different from the ottoman tray? The surface is removed, so we can easily/safely spray/dip/paint/etc. without fear of getting other parts or carpet dirty.
All ideas for reasonably incompetent home-craft people are welcome!
