My first post on craftster and though I'm a sewing addict here's a collage I finished tonight. My first collage.

Its about 75cmx60cm.
Now I need an idea what to use as lacquer. Simple clear coat? Or would that harm the magazine scraps?
Thanks for looking.

sorry i have no suggestions as to what lacquer to use, but your collage came out great! i love doing collages and i don't think i have the patience to cut out the support bars' background, so big ups for that! this came out very well for your first collage.

Mod Podge should work well enough, it's used to coating paper so it shouldn't ruin the magazine.

Your collage is super awesome, I haven't made one in a long while, but they used to all be random and pretty stupid, not like this piece of art.. I love it. This rocks.

I love what you've done Smiley And I can't believe it's a collage. Like imxriotxhere, my collages were all over the place.
