Water safe coating for altered projects???

For those of you who do projects that you mod podge but need water proof (like for outdoors or coasters, etc.), what do you use? i know there are waterproof sprays and other things out there, but i wanted to check with you crafty ladies before i picked. I am planning on doing some of those scrabble tile coasters as a gift for my mom and my grandma (they are scrabble nuts!) Both their birthday are in the fall, so I am planning ahead big time lol!

hmm, I really have no idea. I haven't done anything that needed to be waterproof. Let us know what you decide and how it goes though.

I use an acrylic sealer spray, usually two coats. I haven't had any issues with stuff that I've sprayed, but there's no constant water either (just occasional like with a coaster). The downside is that the sealer STINKS so I let it air out on the deck or garage for a couple of days after spraying.

thanks Gwen...I thought i remembered you or someone else on here using something to protect projects like this. i won't be doing this for a little while, but i wanted to get supplies and my ducks in a row soon.
