Howdy boys and girls! I'm decoupaging some candles (you know, the ones that burn for about 24 hours and usually have Jesus on them?) I'm having a really hard time finding a sealant that I can use. Any suggestions? Sealant needs to be:

High-gloss
Non-yellowing
Heat resistant
Non-flammable (when dry)

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You would be decoupaging on the glass, and not the actual candle?

I would suggest going to the hardware store, and checking out the sealants. You would need to check the label for heat issues, and could pick which ever gloss you would want. Perhaps try Polycrylic.
