Re: Paste Paper

Micro-crystalline Wax (Renaissance Wax) Sc6000 (Acrylic paste wax), Krylon
(Acrylic spray). The Micro-crystalline Wax dries very nicely and doesn't
leave streaks. The SC6000 goes on, but can leave streaks, especially if
applied too thickly. Krylon is nice, but I find it leaves a smell for a
while. Use the mat stuff, not shiny. Talas sells the first two as well as
Klucel G and Methylcellulose. <http://www.talas-nyc.com>

Others have used beeswax, Klucel G, Methylcellulose.

What are you trying to protect it from?

"Mop in Glow"? Yikes. Where do people get these ideas?

All colored papers will fade. Rule of nature.
