If I decoupage a chair can it be used to sit in?
I am working on an old school chair. My daughter's kindergarten class will auction this off to raise funds at the PTL auction.
One idea was to put the children's photos on the chair (decoupage) and offering a certificate of authenticity with a diagram noting who's who. My question is if this is the way we choose to go, is the chair still functional? And would I use just standard decoupage medium or do I need to use shellac? The chair will be painted and have some type of design to it where the pictures will be part of the design (i.e. Mrs. Richard's Garden with the kids photos as faces on the flowers.)
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
