Once the images are dry I seal it with PYM II.
Here's the finished image after I've cut it out.
I painted the background with the gouache paints on a gessoed Masonite board, I then added the image after scanning the piece and printed out a smaller image of it, so I could put it behind a wooden doll house window.
The saying reads:
"You never find the path to your self,
but rather, you find your true inner self
along the path inside you."
