hi guys. i would like to somehow coat a picture on top of a sanded pine top w/o harming the picture. someone also told me that it had to be a matted pic and not a glossy pic,,does this make any sense? i’m looking for what to use for a finish on the box and to seal the picture onto the box. i hope i made this understandable. thanks in advance

-- may not always be right,but,never in doubt.

Google decoupage, it is the practice of adorning an artifact with a picture or leaf etc. and then coating that with a transparent coating sealing the picture onto the surface of the artifact…Wikipedia has a much better explanation than mine ;-)

I think Micheal’s sells the glue and the coating for it, of course there are recipes for both on the net as well.
