    mod podge!!!!
    i love the effect of tissue paper on stuff. great colors and textures.
    if you want it extra durable, spray on a couple coats of acrylic spray. i never mess with the "craft" spray, but go all out and use the krylon spray. it will render the surfaces nearly indestructible.

    Hey sarabell! Don't know mod podge -using thinned white glue

    don't know mod podge I may use this stuff that I have (you pour it over things ) that gives a finish like glass-IT IS cool as shit-- bought it for nothing years ago and can't find it now. I am running short Thanks!

    mod podge is a lot like white glue but not at the same time. almost like a mix of white glue and acrylic matte medium. i have used both white glue and mod podge on tissue paper and prefer the result of mod podge - less bunching and ripping, and a nicer finish. it's the bomb. you can find it at any craft store (and even the dreaded walmart craft section.)

    I have used mod poge, but I prefer liquid starch. Not sticky on your hands, but it may be too watery on cardboard boxes. I use it with glass bottles and tissue paper.

    It is all a learning experience.
