I've made a few of these pendants by applying modge podge to a bamboo tile and adding an image. I also sprayed some of the with a resin spray afterwards. I tried both thin and thick paper. For some reason, it seems like the thin paper is better but sometimes the colors run too much.

Can anyone give me some guidelines for what type of paper, what kinds of collage adhesive and what kind (if any)  of finish?

I really love making these, but i would like them to look more polished and of better quality when they are done.

THANKS!!!

I'm just beginning to make these too and I found a link here that was very helpful:

I like the glossiness of these. As for the colours running on your papers I think you have to either use acid free papers or there is a spray that you can use to make a paper acid free.  I have found that a lot of scrapbooking sites have the right kinds of papers, and lots of info about collaging and ingredients to use.
