I have only done a couple of envelopes and each time I used just watercolours, tomorrow I am going to do one with some collage on it, my question is to those who use watercolours, or clue things onto your envelopes to you put anything over the top to protect it during its travels and if so what do you use ?
curious to see what replies you get to this
suppose you could use a self-shining spray-on floor wax
I have used cheap hair-spray to (hopefully) protect glue edges, etc
in light of description of Bleus mailings, item to Guy is not only appropriate, but so Data Dada
I use acrylic paint. That itself protects the envelope against water coming inside. Expensive, but works very good....
Data Dada or Big Data?
I am so less concern when sending mails.
But some people put pouch over on postcard.
Or you can put plastic wrap or plastic bag and put address on top if you concern...
I send a lot of collaged envelopes and postcards (paper collage, not 3D items). I use Golden matte gel medium as my glue, because it's very strong. And then I generally finish it with an acrylic spray sealant (Krylon is one brand, but there are others). Put your postage stamps on AFTER sealing it.
