Okay, so Modge Podge works great on flat surfaces with thicker items. I used it successfully with tile and monopoly cards.  It had an undesired but enjoyable side effect of making the tile look like wood since it leaves these annoying streakies. But on thinner papers and curved surfaces - I can't keep it from wrinkling!

So, before I started using Modge Podge, I used Aleen's clear craft glue under things but had nothing on the top.  I want something I can use like others use modge podge but that won't 1) make ucky streaks and 2) won't wrinkle my papers to death.

Anyone have a product they think will work for me? I'd appreciate it ever so much. Smiley

What kind of modge podge were you using? This may be a dumb question, but was it the kind made specifically for paper?

I noticed when I use the gloss modge podge, that happens...however, when I use the matte finish and mix it with a little water, it doesn't streak at all.  I haven't tried doing it with the gloss, but I'm sure it would have the same effect, except the surface wouldn't be as shiny and laminated-looking.

I was using Elmers glue mixed with water to avoid wrinkling for a while, too...I'd soak the paper in water first and then just everything.  Once it's REALLY dry, you can always lay a book on top (if it's flat) to prevent wrinkling.

Diamond Glaze.  Google it, it's amazing.  It's a little expensive, and maybe hard to find, unless bought online with shipping charges.  A little goes a long way, I think through the website, you can order a free sample.

It leaves a finish like a layer of really thin, glossy, bendable glass.

I have better luck applying Mod Podge with a small painting brush and bad luck with foam brushes.
