I recently completed a project where I took a book of scrapbook paper and mod-podged it, underneath and on top, but I want to seal it with something that will make it waterproof and potentially even smooth over textures created where the edges of the papers are. (this is instead of purchasing a piece of plexiglass cut to size, which was my original idea but way more expensive than I can afford.)

any ideas? Smiley

If you have a menards near you I would check out buying some .08 clear acrylic.  for a piece of 30"x26" its only 20$.

Otherwise I would get some modge podge hard coat.  Make several thick layers with a wide sponge brush.  Then take some 220 grit sand paper and sand it to an even layer.  Finish off with some waterproof enamel finish spray. 

If that's too much work, you could always get some clear contact paper, cut it long enough to have an over hang over the table, press it down, and attach a trim trough the contact paper on the edges, to stop it from peeling off.

I would use a good ole spray shelack. They come in matte and glossy, not expensive.
