Help! Decoupage glue is tacky when dry
I'm trying to make a decoupage project for my wife. It's a book of painted pages that I've glued cutouts of poems and other such nonsense. The problem I have is that the decoupage glue I've used is really tacky even when dry, so all the pages are sticking together. I've tried Martha Stewart glue as well as USArtQuest Perfect Paper Adhesive. I was thinking of trying Mod Podge next.
I need something to coat these pages with to keep it from being tacky. Suggestions? Please be specific. Someone told me "acrylic medium" but that is vague and I wouldn't know where to begin. A link to a specific product would be most helpful.
Thanks in advance!
