Two sheets of thin glass?

I'd say apply a fixatif or a spray barrier to prevent any bleeding to the watercolor piece and use a gloss acrylic medium on the glass and use a brayer or roller to eliminate any air bubbles. Use a moistened cloth or sponge to wipe up any excess on the glass. Use some wax paper between some weights until the gloss medium dries. Carefully use a razor type paint scraper to clean any excess off.

Edit: I'm stupid and can't read. Gloss medium or PVA are probably your best bet. I believe either golden or liquitex make a high gloss medium that should be as transparent as possible without yellowing.

Oh yeah, I've heard good things about using gloss medium as glue - my mum raves about it, and she's very into textile arts.

Thanks gang gloss medium sounds quite promising. Is it this stuff?

You people will by God act like a team, or at least like people who know each other, or I'll incinerate the bunch of you here and now.


Is there any interest in a "show off your work" thread? I haven't found anything along those lines, but I'd be really interested to see what other goons are up to.

I like the idea, as I don't frequent the CC threads that aren't relevant to my skillset/abilities. It'd be nice to have exposure to different art forms I'm not terribly familiar with. I say go for it.

Sometimes you want to ride the roller coaster twice and you don’t wanna wait in line.


Seconded. I wish I could participate in the daily doodle thread but I never have time. I might be able to post a finished piece like 3 times a year though

And so it was done. Go post your projects! I want to see what others are making, and show off the stuff I've been working on.

"You're the best looking guy here."


Looking to spend more time focusing on drawing, and would like to pick up a decent model for references. I'm not a big fan of the classic wood ones but have no idea what's considered good among all the other types out there.
