The type of sealant you get is up to you. However, we recommend a glue that remains clear upon drying as the type of glue you use could make your diamonds appear less shiny. Feel free to experiment with different glues!
Most glues will only be effective for a certain period of time, therefore you’ll have to repeat this process every 3 years or so.
Also, make sure you dust your painting often as dust can still get in between the cracks of your beads when on display for long periods of time.
