Okay - first I want to say I am totally new here....so please forgive if I am in the "wrong" area...but I *think* I'd post a decoupage question here.

I would like to take an old cookie sheet & decoupage it to make it into a magnetic board.  At first I was just going to go for it, but now I really do have a use for it & want to not screw this craft up if possible.  My Dh accidentally ruined a really good extra large sized cookie sheet by thinking something was a hot pad that wasn't & melting it to the backside. So I have this great large area to use as a magnetic board for my ds's room & I want to figure out how to coat it to put with the use of a 5 yr old.  I was wondering if anyone had any topcoat suggestions that would be better for extra abuse to protect the paper?

ANY input is greatly appreciated.  Smiley

You could always give it extra coats of the glue you used for the decoupage.

Welcome to Craftster! That sounds like a fun project; I hope you'll post it here when you're done.

I think several thin layers of Mod Podge would do the trick. Smiley
