    Modge Podge

  • I would agree with ModPodge. Although if it isn't thick enough you may want to try something thicker like an epoxy that has a thicker glass like coating.

    Thanks, I tried modge podge and didn't achieve desired outcome. I'd like it to be a clear layer to build it up

    If using mod Podge, use an acrylic spray sealer also to make it durable.

    I have seen pour on bar top epoxy used over a newspaper covered countertop. It might work great for your coasters, but Im not positive. There is a chance it might not stick well to the 100 percent paper.
