I spy the Joker! * squeal*

I've done a few pages now that are acrylic. After they have dried ( a long time after) the pages are sticking to each other and mixing colors on to the opposite page. I know people use floor wax to fix this problem. Will any brand do? What should I look for? I read some where that you want to use polyurethane floor waxes? How can I tell by looking at the bottle? I visited a couple of $1 stores the past two days but didn't want buy the wrong thing. Money is scarce right now so I wanted to be SURE I was getting the right thing.

I use Minwax brand polyurethane that can be applied with a brush.  I always apply many thin coats, always letting the previous coat dry completely first.

I know there is an aerosol poly that will also work as a sealant.  I have never used the aerosol version though. 

You're looking for a sealant, not a wax.  Hope this helps.

Pretty - I LOVE that second page!  What a genius idea.  It's great.  The first one is pretty awesome too, I totally got that feeling of imagination before I read what you wrote, so it worked, lol.

Speaking of sealant - I am for sure going to need something over my pages.  Anyone know if that aerosol stuff works on collages too?

So you basically pick a theme and work from there in a sketchbook?
Something like a Junque journal only with a theme?

That's right. We're all working on the Sketchbook Project, which you can read about here. I believe signups for participation on that site are closed, but you are welcome to pick a theme and craft along with us.  Smiley

I have used Future brand floor wax to seal work with and have a large bottle that I'm sure will last me a hundred years.....I'll go dig it out and see what it is made of.  Anyway you just apply a thin coat (it is very liquid) with a sponge brush, let dry and buff the page a bit with a clean cloth.

Thanks!
I read about that project before but since I'm not in the US, I couldn't join Smiley
I might join if I can buy another sketchbook somewhere wait! I have a sketchbook that I'm not using, it's actually one that I gave to my mum but she doesn't use it..., so why leave it unused, right? Cheesy

I think anyone from around the world can join their projects, I'm from Canada and I'm pretty sure there are a few people from the UK participating here.  There are a bunch of different ones going on besides the Sketchbook Project....but in any case you should play along with us!
