Hello,

I was watching a Susan Lyon Video, where she mentions using Polyurethane on Mat Boards and Museum Boards. Has anyone tried this before?

Thanks

Faisal

I looked around and found some discussions on it. Mostly, they said if you used it to be sure you do only one coat. If you add a second coat when it's drying then it can flake. They also used Gesso on it once it was dry. I have never tried it myself. Good luck.

I've never tried it either - it doesn't "feel" right but I don't have any knowledge about it at all.

I've never tried it either, but I have used soft pastels directly on mat board for some Christmas cards I planned on printing out for sale. It worked great and gave a nice even background for the card. Using a clear polyurethane would also give you an even background color or texture if that is what you are looking for.
