Very cool!

I'd use either polycrylic or polyurethane to seal it. Polyurethane is a little more durable but super stinky and messy to clean up. Polycrylic is water based so clean up is easy and it's not as noxious but you'd have to do at least two coats of it, if not 3 on the top.

Thanks so much! I was hoping someone would suggest a sealer. Polycrylic sounds good, even if we have to coat it a few times. We'll probably be working inside so something that isnt stinky is better Wink Do they have a spray on? Or is it better to brush it on?

Use polycrylic fo'sho. I use only that when I make all the pin up tables me and ash use, there is a aerosol spray can version you can buy for about 12 bucks for about 8 or 10 ounces i think at Wal*Mart. I haven't used it yet, but plan to on my next one. For my tables I use about 30 or 40 coats before Iam satisfied that it is entirely even, but since it is just paint you shouldn't need any more than that.

Well it looks like some moisture got it, next time you might want to add a sealant like the others said. I like to use Polyacyrillic, its a water based polyurethane that goes on nicely over a top coat of modge podge. I like to put on about 25 coats, lightly sand with fine sandpaper, and then apply about 25 more for a glossly smooth look. You may want to just put a few coats, whatever looks good to you.Cheesy

Thats a really good job though, I love how the comics fall into place. Right now my wife is working on a Marylin Monroe theme on our coffee table, you guys can expect pics in the coming week.
