I made these today. Some Addams family scrapbooking paper and some  ceramic tile... I mod podged them to the tile and then sealed them 5 times!

How cool.

May I ask, what did you use to seal them?

Sure... I used clear coat waterproof sealer... you can find it at a home improvement store!

Do you glue the paper down to the tile first then podge over the whole thing OR do you just use the podge AS the glue to the tile then seal it?
I know this is nit picky but I've had some wrinkling with paper goods that I'm podging, so I find that the paper has to be taught (i.e. pre glueing) -but this was tissue paper.

Thank you

I did something similar to this with photographs printed on Iron-on inkjet transfers. I heat set the image on the transfer with a hair dryer then soaked them in warm water to get the transfer from the backing, placed them on a tile and sealed them with 1 coat of modge podge and about 10 coats of Krylon art finish. I have wanted to try just scrapbook paper or wrapping paper though. What is your trick for keeping the paper from wrinkling?

sew photo... I did seal it down first with mod podge... I think the best thing to do when mod podging.. is the first layer... must be thin... and even.
