Adding a coat of Mod podge will aid against water damage and give an even glossier look. Great Tutorial!

I walked directly to my stack of magazines and started flipping through and pulling out pages. I think a little polyurethane varnish would make them more durable.

Yeah I agree, I know the earrings I made are definitely not the most durable but there is a lot of wiggle room for improvement.. I'm already making a 2.0 version.
