If gluing seed beads to a flat surface, is there a spray or glue to put on top to make sure they stay smooth and secure to the object?

Using Beadswax® to adhere seed beads to paper or objects gives a strong hold and beads will not pop off after time. Peel and stick adhesive tape and sheets can also be used. If seed beads are adhered to a sealed surface, you can hard-coat the seed and bugle beads using Signature Series Magic-Glos® top coat or create a flexible coat with Kato Polyclay™ clear medium liquid. Other sealant options include DesignaSeal and Vitrium® Clear Protectant sealant.
