I'm fairly new to the site...and to heavy duty crafting.  Recently I got an awesome new printer and can print images to decopauge with.  Question is, is there an adhesive that won't smear the ink?  Or would this be more of a "try as you go" approach?


I can do personal swaps!  ^_^

An expert, I am not.  But I know that Mod Podge is a very good adhesive, and I've seen it used with computer printouts.  I use Elmer's glue with a few drops of water mixed in, and that seems to work just fine too.

How did you guys get it to not smear? I tried it ModPodge and it smeared like crazy!
I just bought a can of spray "fixative" that says it can be used on inks and such, hopefully it'll work!

I would spray the fixative very lightly, let dry, and then go crazy with the modpodge

Would you like to go to a pants party?
