Default Artist Trading Coins

If you're not familiar with these, they are basically a 2 1/2 inch round version of artist trading cards. I watched the Craftyhodges video on the basics



Maybe I missed it; what was she going to use ultimately to seal it?


Some I've seen have chipboard backing, others all cardstock. Just individual preference?

These are so much fun to make. She said something about shoe wax to seal it but I don't know why it needs that.

Shoe wax? Strange. Hmm, the Gamblin paste reminds me of the Judikins MicroGlaze (which I have). That should seal it, right?

I love those coins. I should say I love looking at the coins on Instagram & Pinterest.

I have seen people use Versamark and clear embossing powder to seal them. I wonder if beeswax would work? Could you use one of the acrylic glazes on the market like Duraclear brands?

I use to steal my Dad's shoe polish to seal things. That shoe polish brought back a nostalgia trip, lol.

I have a big old can of paste wax (for floors or cars) that I use to seal stuff. Works quite well, and is pretty inexpensive. Some artist on UTube recommended it.

If we are using scrapbook and card making supplies why do they need to be sealed? If need be I would just use a wax stick for addressing cards to make them waterproof.
