didn’t mean to be harsh . . .
what I do is completely seal the paper first – then adhere it to the board or other surface.
the process that you are in the middle of now may lead to bleeding of
either the ink or the wood or the table finish into the paper.
there are dozens of clear coats on the market. the one that I use exclusively for sealing
and clear coating is Rust-Oleum Triple Thick Glaze. glaze it first, then glue it down.
depending on the project, I will glaze the paper, let it dry, paint the back with white enamel,
then glue it to the surface. (and I practiced beforehand – to become familiar with the product).
