I suppose it's possible, but i've never tried anything like that. I did notice spray cans of contact adhesive at the art supply store when I went to buy the clear overcoat, so it might work...

The stuff I'm using is called Krylon Workable Fixative. It's in a spray can, and dries pretty quickly. It does have some nasty ingredients, so make sure you use it only in a VERY well ventilated area, preferably outdoors.

Guys,
Have a look at http://www.folex-usa.com/
If you go to the right hand pull down at the bottom of the page you can get a recomendation for the correct product for your printer by clicking on manufacturer then model type.
They do a clear sticky ink jet film that is 50 microns thick is that too thick for us??
How big is a micron or how small for that matter!!

To cover and protect ink jet stickers: Use packing tape! Its clear, thin, flexible, and watertight. After printing the sticker (but before cutting), cover it with 2" packing tape (wider is availible) and then cut. Since the ink from ink jets is flat, the tape will make the stickers shinny and it won't scratch nearly as easily as anything painted on.

This stuff I got to paint on is very hardy, I don't think it will scratch

I got some of the paper today, a little more $$$ than I expected, 30 bucks, but I'll try some soon!

Anyone ever tried products from Azon? I stumbled on their site and don't understand the differences and what might and might not work.

Can some shed some light on this?

It would appear at first glance that their inkjet films might do a good job, what specific questions did you have?

Well, I tried some of my lacquer spray on, and it didn't work. It would leave some areas with now spray, don't know why. So I used packaging tape, and that worked OK...Trips, what kind of stuff do you use with the 8665 stuff?
