Need help on sealing oil based stained wood then adding photos & letters and sealing
HELP! I am an experienced DIYer and crafter. Iíve been asked to create a ĎHole in Oneí type of plaque. The plaque will need to have several photos and letters mounted on the plaque. I used Varathane wood stain in ebony on the wood. I believe the next step is to seal the wood prior to adhering the photos and letters so the stain does not bleed through and ruin photos/letters. Iíve read conflicting posts on the right sealer to use on oil based stain. What is the best option? Then once the wood is stained, can you recommend how to adhere the photos and letters so they are archival quality, will not yellow or separate from wood? Finally, what do you recommend to seal the entire plaque to get a high gloss and protective finish?
This needs to be high quality as it will be sitting in a Major League Baseball players trophy case next to his other valued trophies like a World Series trophy. All advice welcomed! I canít seem to find the right solution and Iíve been combing through various websites.
Thank you in advance!!
