Memory Game Tiles - Sealer?

Made a quick memory game and then hand painted the animals faces. Tried sealing it with a clear polyurethane, and the residue from the cut came up through the poly and made it look dirty :frowning:
Anyone have a better sealer, or a way to keep the residue from coming up like that?

I like them too. The bleeding doesn’t look that bad to me.

You might try with a Krylon fixative first…just a quick spray to seal the char before hitting it with the poly.

Oooh I even have some of that I think!
I’ll have to try one tomorrow and see how it goes!

I’ve never tried the fixative stuff, but I use Krylon spray glazes and especially love the “triple thick” stuff for the dimension it gives. (If you click the link, it gives a bunch of different Krylon options.)

You can kinda see it here

That looks really nice!
Does it fill the engraved areas at all, or just seal them?

Thanks. :slight_smile:
If you mean did it make the engraved areas flush with the top of the material, no, it didn’t, and you can still feel the engraved areas.

These are so cute! You might try to clean the tiles with a brush if it’s the soot causing the issue before painting/clear coating them…

These are super cute. I glanced back at the photo and saw a little smiling kid wearing a giraffe hat.

Now that is all I see. :slight_smile:

These are adorable. I have a precious little friend I have been waiting to make something special for. A memory game is going to be perfect!
