Question Teacher-words shaped like an apple... how to prevent smearing?

I was playing around on-line and made some teacher words in the shape and color of an apple... red for the apple shape, green for the leaf, and brown for the stem. The words include teacher, inspire, kind, encouraging, patient, etc.

It prints nicely on my HP PhotoSmart Plus printer on Recollections card stock and I give it some *drying time*-- but how do I "seal it" to prevent the ink from being smear-able before I do some layering?

I know I could coat the "Word Apple" with Mod Podge, but wondered if there is anything else I might use to protect it?

Thanks!

Thanks, basketdiva! I was hoping there could also be some kind of protective spray or something. Mod Podge is a "brush on" but you can still see the brush strokes even if using a foam brush.

Krylon workable fixative: Krylon Workable Matte Fixatif - BLICK art materials

I've never used it but I often see it recommended by Dina.

Thanks for the extra info... and guess what? I actually DO have the Krylon Workable Fixative!

If Cook22 hadn't mentioned it, I wouldn't have even thought of it, as it's in with my water color paper! Dini, great to second the Krylon suggestion!

TeeGeeDee, I've never used that MicroGlaze product, but I'm sure I need it for something!!! LOLAM



Thank you all so much!

Yes it is awesome! I spray my digi stamps before I color with odorless mineral spirits!

That was my answer as well. Use it in a well ventilated space.

Great stuff and you use an extremely small amount (rub it on).
