Cool, that sounds good. Probably won’t go the stencil route because each ball will have a different word, so that would take too much time. Stenciling onto a sphere also seems tough.
Right now the Mod Podge + varnish seems like the best route.
If the word is already stuck with sticky paper, would it be possible to just varnish it and skip the Mod Podge? What advantage does the Mod Podge give? Since I’m making a bunch, it would definitely save time to just lay them out all together and spray them with varnish once rather than having to coat something on with a brush.
Can you recommend a particular varnish/are there any specs I should look for?
Thanks so much!!!

Thanks for the reply! That sounds like a good option because people keep recommending it to me. Do you know if Mod Podge would need to be applied to the entire ball or just to the part with the label?
I.e., is there a visible seam that would be easily picked off by little fingers?March 25, 2017 at 1:50 am in reply to: I need help adding a transparent layer to small plastic balls for children to use in the classroom. #463623
Wow! Thanks. Actually this is the third time that I’ve had someone recommend Mod Podge to me; I don’t know how I didn’t hear about it!
What I may have to do is use an international shipping service; it’s expensive but if I ship the balls and the Mod Podge in one shipment it might be worth it.
Do you know if when you use Mod Podge there’s a layer that could peel off? That is, would I have to coat the entire ball or would it be OK to just coat over the part with the label?
Thanks for the help!
