      Tried to make a resin cutting board with glossy photos printed from the local CVS – sprayed them with Mod Podge® Ultra Gloss All-In-One Glue & Sealer Spray and spread with a foam brush, let sit for 12 hours. Put them in the resin and within less than half an hour, the colors faded and when I used a silicone stick to move glitter off the photos, the ink on the photos streaked off. The piece is ruined. What did I do wrong?

      Hi Suzanne,

      I’ve never used that spray-on gloss product, and I’ve never used photos printed on photo paper. I’m not sure what happened.

      I always print my photos onto bright white paper with a color laserjet printer. The dot matrix printing always smears for me when applying glue. Maybe something similar happened here.

      As for glue, I use a brush-on one like this:
