Hi everyone! So I got some plain wooden trays from the buck store here.

Then I decided to paint them with my favourite style. Tattoo-ish!

Here is the first one I did.
Just a question though.... is there anyway I could seal this?? Like what would I use... I don't even know what I'd use the tray for... lol.

anyway... here it is.... i should really take daytime pics in natural light, because the flash does nothing for it.





thanks for looking! Cheesy

Gorgeous! I love it!

To seal it I would suggest a good quality varnish applied in a few layers, or for a more hard-wearing finish try a resin. You will find coating resin (or use casting, it's all the same  Wink) in either the craft aisle or the paint section of a hardware store. Resin will pour in one step and be equivalent to about 50 layers of varnish, but the choice is yours.

Stunning work.

lol, I get mine in Bunnings hardware store (super-gigantic hardware chain) for $20, and even a small tin of varnish will be about $15. I get epoxy resin - less fumes and just pour it in equal parts and it's actually made for projects like these where you coat artwork, countertops etc - from the craft aisle. I use it for casting resin jewellery too  Cheesy. A 250mL pack (smallest I have seen) will leave you with heaps more left over.

You can always find resin on the 'net too, and epoxy resin shouldn't have any trouble being posted (the catalyst for polyester resin is a 'hazardous substance' and usually has to be posted by courier which costs more).

Good Luck!
