I'm trying to make wooden acrylic coasters for a present and have hit a snag along the way.

Tutorials online suggested I try Modpodge's acrylic sealer spray. Big mistake. Long story short, although my paint had been dry for nearly a month at this point, I sprayed it to seal the coasters and it ruined one of my better ones (see pictures).
(I think the reason it ruined this one in particular was because I used Sharpie paint pen, because it didn't ruin two others I made. Should I continue using that sealer on those two?)

Any suggestions for ways to seal the remaining coasters without destroying them?

I think it's the sharpie paint pen, but I'm not 100% sure. I did have a similar reactions with a permanent marker once. Do you have some left over paint and sharpie to do a test? Just to be sure before you ruin the other ones?

I agree, it's gotta be the sharpie paint pen. We figured out that since the paint pen is water-soluble, polyurethane and sealers don't mix well with them. If I find any more wood, I'll try to test it out for sure. Do you have any ideas about other ways to seal coasters?

(Also thank you for replying! I really appreciate it)
