    waterproofing paper mache HELP!!!!

    Ok, I have a pirate parade coming up and i have made this HUGE lovely wonderfull paper mache mermaid for the front of the truck we are all riding in.... and OF COURSE it looks like a tropical storm is coming.....

    waterproofing paper mache

    I think several coats of clear acrylic paint medium (you can get this from an art supply store) would work well. It essentially dries into a layer of clear, flexible plastic, so it won't flake or chip like shellac might. It would be more expensive than a finish from a hardware store-and might take a while- you'd have to apply it with a brush- no spray cans.

    I wish you good luck and good weather.
