This is my favorite Jan. postcard. It's postmarked Dec 30th 1912. The embossing makes it very unique.
These are 4x4 smooth tiles, metallic gold paper and found vintage pictures. I tore and inked the edges and attached each layer with ModPodge. While it was still wet, I sprinkled fine glitter. I have been experiencing with the layers of protection. Several layers of the ModPodge will protect but I don't like the visual lines that are left when dried.
So I started finishing the layers with "Triple Thick" or FolkArt Thick glaze" by Plaid, several layers. For perfection and the best protection, I would use good ol' Epoxy, I use EnviroTex Pour On for all my Epoxy projects. Don't forget to add bubble or felt dots to the backside!
