Original Post

I covered something in glitter by using glue, and it's adhered really well. Now I'd like to keep it on there! What's the best spray-on thing to use? I'm guessing some kind of fixative or finish but I don't know which. Thanks for any help.

What material is the glitter adhered to?

I've tried a clear acrylic sealer before, but I don't know if it was the sealer or if I used too much glitter, it seems to lift the glitter alittle. But, on the other hand, the glitter did stay put and did not flake off

I like using these products for my crafts, I've had good results and they have a variety of products, so hopefully one of them will work for you.

Thanks to both of you! I had no idea where to start looking. It's paper mache, PaperAvenue.
