doing art


As I mentioned last time, I've made Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays serious art days. I've only taken a few minutes to dabble on the computer today, while I was waiting for the UV resistant sealer on these pressed flower pictures to dry.

Now, back to work!

Hi Elizabeth! I am interested in more info on the UV sealant you use on your work. Are you applying this to cards? Do you paint it on or spray it?

I work with wedding bouquets and the BANE of my work is "floaties"...those little pieces that float away AFTER I've vaccuum sealed the art in the frame. I am wondering if a spray sealant would eliminate this problem and add just a little more UV protection? (I use UV Protective, Museum-quality glass)

Any ideas??

Thanks!

Hi Annie!

I hate those floaties too!

I have been using "Perfect Paper Adhesive" as a sealant on my cards as well as my pressed flower art. It's an archival UV resistant polymer that is almost impossible to detect. You paint on a thin coating, and it dries crystal clear, but it's also flexible, making it perfect for cards.

You can find it at large craft stores, or I have it as well:

And, like you, I also use UV resistant glass or acrylic.

Happy Pressing!
