I'm working on a quilling project and am wondering if there is anything I can spray on it that will sort of waterproof or seal it without damaging the paper. Do any of you know of anything?

  • You can also use acrylic spray

  • Mod Podge! You brush it on and let it dry, it dries clear. There is a type that is waterproof now. I have used spray-on clear-coat nail polish before, too. It didn't hurt the paper either.

  • @steveiguana - do you know what she adds to the modge podge? I never thought about watering it down. Does that affect the paper at all from the wateriness?

  • I"ve been quilling for over 50 years before there were fancy things we used white glue like Elmers Glue all.
